Related to membership of BMT Center, Saat said, in 2009 there are two members who are expelled because of unrequire with members performance standards. But in the same year, there are increased eight new members. Thus the number of members of BMT Center in 2009 to 144 units, increased from 138 units in 2008″. n 2010 there will be 30 BMT who were waiting for the process of becoming members,” Saat said.

According to Saat, 2010 was a good year for Islamic microfinance institutions to flourish. This is supported by the existence of several banks existing and new conventional banks and Islamic Banks will enter in the micro sector. They offer a number of financing over IDR 50 million per outstanding, especially with consumer financing.
”But this is necessary to guard in case so as not to be over-flow needs, so it will attract competition which ignores the element of prudence,” Saat said.

As for financing at rates below IDR 50 million, he added, it will be accessibility issues. It was hoped, there will be synergies between banking and linkage portfolio of Permodalan BMT to increase financing for micro entrepreneurs for outstanding below IDR 20 million.However, there are several threats, especially from the rise of new institutions engaged in microfinance that are sometimes operated without using the principles of good governance (good corporate governance or GCG), which is why we need to remind the government regulator to limit loss new laws and increased surveillance.
