Jakarta, 25 October 2021 -- PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk or BNI captures the unrelenting interest of millennials to learn and start a business during the Covid-19 Pandemic. At least this enthusiasm for doing business can be seen from the high interest of millennials to enroll in the Aku Saudagar Muda Program (ASM) 2021. This ASM 2021 program is held to coincide with the commemoration of the 93rd Youth Pledge Day on 28 October 2021, so that the spirit is the same as the theme of the national holiday, namely the spirit to Unite, Rise, and Grow.
Until the closing of the ASM 2021 registration period on 25 October 2021, BNI recorded 2,510 registrants. The event, which carries the theme of Muda Pasti Bisa, invites Indonesian millennials to hone their skills in entrepreneurship without worrying about initial capital problems.
To become ASM 2021 participants, applicants will be screened first. Later, each participant who passes the selection process will become a reseller to market the superior products of MSME partners fostered by Rumah BUMN BNI. As a reseller, ASM 2021 participants will get many benefits, including being able to start a business without capital or free, get a margin or profit from the products sold, and may attend training on entrepreneurship from BNI.
BNI is a bank that actively empowers millennials to be able to stand alone in the economy. In addition to ASM 2021, BNI also held a MASK program or Magang Asik & Keren at Rumah BUMN BNI.
BNI’s Corporate Secretary, Mucharom in Jakarta, Thursday (28 October 2021) invites regional millennials, both students and fresh graduates, to be enthusiastic about learning entrepreneurship from a young age while helping to market superior MSME products in their respective regions.
