We’re pleased to announce that Musoni has been chosen by Gojo & Company as a core banking and digitalisation partner for Microfinance Delta International (MIFIDA), serving 180,000 clients in Myanmar. Musoni and Gojo have entered into a global partnership with the goal of standardising core banking systems across their network.
Founded in 2014, Gojo and Company’s goal is to enable the provision of high-quality financial services to over 100 million unserved and underserved people, with the underlying mission of extending financial services to everyone. Gojo now work with seven financial organisations across Asia, with expansion into Africa planned in the near future. This aligns closely with Musoni’s mission to improve the quality and availability of financial services around the world through world class technology.
Gojo selected Musoni as one of its partners due to the company’s extensive experience supporting financial institutions across Asia and Africa. Founded in 2013, Musoni is now used by 70 financial institutions across 22 countries and available in Myanmar, Vietnamese, Mandarin, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. With regional offices in Myanmar and Kenya, and support partners in Senegal and Latin America, Musoni is well placed to support Gojo’s expansion strategy.
Aside from Musoni’s cloud banking system and digital field application, MIFIDA will immediately benefit from Musoni’s integration with MCIX (Myanmar’s data sharing platform for microfinance), and Mojaloop, the new payment switch being launched in 2021. Over the next month Musoni will be rolled out across MIFIDA’s 60 branches with the goal of going live before year end. The implementation is closely supported by ThitsaWorks, Musoni’s support partner in Myanmar.
Cameron Goldie-Scot, Musoni’s CEO, said, “We are delighted to have been selected as the digitalisation partner to MIFIDA, and as one of the preferred core banking systems for the Gojo microfinance network. We share the same goal of extending financial inclusion and are excited at working closely together over the coming years.”
Taejun Shin, CEO and Founder of Gojo, said: “We’re excited to be working with Musoni on the ongoing digitalisation of our microfinance operations, starting with MIFIDA in Myanmar. Musoni is an excellent core banking system with a strong track record of helping MFIs to quickly and easily digitalise, and local support teams in many of our core markets. We’re looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
