Millennials today are a generation who live in the balance of the worldly and otherworldly.


One of the efforts to raise the national economy is by optimizing the young generation's role in the diversity aspect of it. Generally, millennials today are a generation who live in the balance of the worldly and otherworldly.

We call them Gen-Sy (read: Gen-Si), a new generation who is hoping to be able to benchmark energy and indicators to elevate the economy's growth and Sharia finance in Indonesia. Besides, literacy and economic inclusion in the aspect of Sharia finance, specifically in Banking and Non-Bank Financial Institution (IKNB) Sharia, needs to be encouraged deeply by the Gen-Sy, so that they can support this country financially in the future.
