In an eff ort to further strengthen the growth of Indonesia’s Islamic fi nance industry, a state-owned Indonesian credit guarantee company has recently spun off its Shariah division. The company, known in its Indonesian acronym as Perum JAMKRINDO, was originally established by the government of Indonesia under the name of Lembaga Jaminan Kredit Koperasi (LJKK), which in English means the cooperative credit guarantee agency, in 1970 to support the growth of cooperative sector in the country.
