VisionFund Myanmar (VFM), the second largest MFI in Myanmar with 250,000 end customers and a portfolio of over $65MM, selected Musoni as their digitalisation partner at the end of 2018. Since then they have grown by a further 50,000 customers, launched new products and services for their customers, and rolled out the Musoni DFA across all 750 field officers.
Getting started together
As part of the Musoni implementation, all data from VFM’s previous system was migrated into Musoni. This included over 300k clients, all client data, social performance history, 500k loans, 500k savings accounts and over a million loan repayments & savings deposits. The first wave of branches went live on Musoni after just three months, with all remaining branches migrated in the following six months. The implementation was carried out with the support of ThitsaWorks, Musoni’s official partner in Myanmar.
Since launching on Musoni, VFM have already seen real benefits. Speaking one year into the project, Rommel Caringal, VFM’s CEO, stated that “Musoni has already delivered measurable benefits to us, including reduced system operating costs, improved efficiency from new features like the in-built credit checks, and improved security through cloud computing.”
Rommel added that “the real value in Musoni is that it provides the foundation for our digital transformation, including digital field applications and mobile banking. This foundation will enable us to sustainably bring convenient financial services to hundreds of thousands more financially excluded families across Myanmar for many years to come.”
Further improving efficiency, Musoni has also been integrated with a number of VFM’s third party systems, including their external accounting system (used by the VisionFund International Group), and BankBI, a business intelligence tool.
