The outbreak of Covid 19 that occurred worldwide in almost every part of the world at the beginning of 2020, including in Indonesia, has created negative sentiment against different business lines , especially the MSME business [1][2][3]. The negative impact of the outbreak of Covid-19 has hindered the growth of the MSME industry, where physical distancing and the movement of large-scale social constraints (PSBB) are considered to impede the movement of MSME companies involving showrooms or promotions[4][5][6] MSMEs are facing difficulties in repaying loans to financial institutions because, due to the effects of Covid-19, the profits earned often decrease because of the decrease in the amount of income received[7][8][9].

Most MSMEs in different countries , especially developing countries, find it difficult to get loans from banks based on empirical evidence from different studies [23].
