VIRL Financial Services wins the Most Rural Outreach award

Musoni System is proud to announce that our customer VIRL Financial Services, has been awarded the Most Rural Outreach MFI award for their outstanding efforts in serving rural communities. VIRL Financial Services is a microfinance institution based in Zimbabwe, which has been using the Musoni core banking system for over 7 years, to support their work in reaching out to remote areas and serving the unbanked by providing financial services.

The award, presented by the Zimbabwe Association of Microfinance (ZAMFI), recognizes organizations that have demonstrated exceptional efforts in reaching and serving rural communities. VIRL Financial Services was selected for the award for its innovative approach to delivering financial services to remote areas, using technology to reach the most hard-to-reach communities.

Musoni’s core banking system has played a critical role in VIRL’s success by providing a flexible, cloud-based platform that enables VIRL to manage its operations and reach its target audience efficiently. The system also provides real-time data and analytics, which has helped VIRL to make informed decisions and optimize its services to better serve its customers.

“We are thrilled that VIRL Financial Services has been recognized for their outstanding efforts in serving rural communities,” said Sander van der Heyden, Co-founder and CEO of Musoni System. “We are proud to be a part of their success and are committed to continue providing them with the tools and technology they need to serve their customers effectively.”

“We are honoured to receive the ‘Most Rural Outreach’ award and proud of the impact we have made in rural communities. We recognize that access to financial resources and services is not always equal, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to bridge that gap and improve the lives of those who live in rural areas.  It is through great partnerships with our agent’s network and Musoni System that VIRL Financial Services was able to reach out to rural communities” said Virginia Sibanda, Founder-CEO VIRL Financial Services.

This award is a testament to VIRL’s dedication to providing financial services to underbanked communities and to the effectiveness of Musoni’s core banking system in helping organizations to achieve their goals.
