KOPERASI MITRA USAHA KECIL (Micro Enterprise Partners Cooperative), or MUK, is a microfinance institution on the island of Bali in the country of Indonesia and is the sister organization of long-standing KIVA partner DINARI Foundation. MUK was created in 2009 out of a new Indonesian legal obligation to separate its financial lending operations from the non-profit social programming offered by DINARI Foundation.
 

MUK provides services to all lower income people throughout Bali, without consideration of race, religion or culture. They assist small businesses and their owners by providing training, business consultation and loans, with the intention of increasing profits thereby enabling the owners to better provide daily needs, education and services for themselves and their families. MUK offers both individual and group “Trust Bank” loans.

As part of an ongoing effort to fully migrate risk ratings to our new and enhanced risk rating system, Kiva has conducted a re-assessment of the level of risk posed by this institution.
 
During this re-assessment, our analysts were able to gather updated operational and financial information about the institution, as well as speak with key members of the staff. 
 
The information gathered during this process, together with the Kiva's new risk rating system and half-star support, has led us to revise MUK's risk rating from 4 to 2.5 stars. The analysts have found that MUK's risk variables, reviewed in the new risk rating model, were most representative of a 2.5-Star rating.
 
We have prepared a blog post with more information on Kiva's new and enhanced risk rating system, along with a chart showing the relative magnitude of the overall changes for Kiva's portfolio.  To view that, please go here: http://www.kiva.org/updates/kiva/2011/09/07/kiva-risk-ratings-now-with-half-stars.html.
 
MUK has been informed of our analysts’ findings and their corresponding change in rating.
