JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – PT Pawn shops (Persero) extended the Pawn Care program until December 31, 2020.
Head of the Pegadaian Company Communication Department Basuki Tri Andayani said the program, which has been ongoing since May 2020, has become a form of company concern for the community during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Until the end of August 2020, it was noted that the program had been used by more than 2 million customers with a total loan of IDR 1.39 trillion with an average loan of IDR 690,000.
“This certainly helps the public in obtaining financial solutions in the midst of a pandemic which has an impact on economic conditions,” explained Basuki in his official statement, Tuesday (15/9/2020).
He explained that the public could apply for the program by pawning goods and attaching a copy of the KTP, and filling in the forms provided at Pegadaian outlets.
However, each family can only access one transaction. This is so that more people can enjoy the benefit of the Pawn Care program,
“The conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic have yet to show signs of ending. Therefore, Pegadaian has extended this program so that people can experience Pegadaian as the right financial solution, “he said.
Basuki emphasized, to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission, the company in providing services continues to apply prevention protocols.
For example, requiring customers to take temperature measurements, wash hands, wear masks.
“As well as having to adjust the distance in transactions,” said Basuki.
