Fintech P2P Lending is only an online lending and loan platform provider that brings together borrowers and lenders while banks act directly as lenders. So the Fintech P2P Lending platform organizer is not authorized to provide loan restructuring without the consent of the lender. The authority lies with the lender, but the organizer can facilitate requests for restructuring for MSME borrowers affected by Covid-19 to the lenders, "said Tumbur.

Likewise, sectors related to the distribution of food, agricultural products, food packaging, have a positive development.
The telecommunications sector and the online ecosystem that are services are also increasingly being used to support daily life and have the potential to continue to grow in line with the shift in people's consumption behavior.
"During the Covid-19 outbreak, there was good news from several platforms that continued to record growth in disbursement. With the power of product innovation and the adaptation of artificial intelligent (credit scoring) in risk management, they still recorded spectacular growth of more than 100%. Of course, this is possible because of support
and from their lenders both institutional and individual, "Kuseryansyah said.
