CARD Myanmar joins hands with Musoni and ThitsaWorks to accelerate digitalisation in Myanmar
Updated: Jan 19
Yangon, 29th June, 2020
CARD Myanmar Co., Ltd, the international social development organization, has recently gone live on the Musoni cloud banking system in partnership with ThitsaWorks.
Poverty in Myanmar is one of the main challenges in addressing the country's development. According to the 2017 Myanmar Living Condition Survey (MLCS), about one in four people in Myanmar is poor. Despite strong performance in poverty reduction, vulnerability to poverty remains an issue. Since a number of vulnerable people are lagging behind in the economic process, it is important to encourage inclusive growth where every individual can enjoy. Small and Medium Enterprises and Microfinances therefore play a crucial role to bring credit access to people in rural and suburban areas and promote their well-being.
Sharing a common goal to eradicate poverty in Myanmar, CARD Myanmar have chosen Musoni’s award-winning core banking system to more easily grow their portfolio and provide more channels to their customers. Over the coming months CARD Myanmar will continue their digitalisation journey, and deploy additional digital channels such as the Musoni digital field application for loan officers, and the Musoni client app. Making the system perfectly suited for Myanmar, all solutions are already translated into local language and the system includes the FRD financial reports as standard.
Mr. Bengie L. Buenviaje, Microfinance Expert from CARD Myanmar, said “We are delighted to work together with Musoni and ThitsaWorks. Musoni is perfectly suited for us in supporting our digitalisation strategy. We are convinced that this is an excellent mechanism for us to become a sustainable microfinance company providing integrated services to low-income families and contribute to poverty eradication in Myanmar.”
Mr. Cameron Goldie-Scot, Musoni’s CEO, added “We are very proud to be chosen as a core banking system of CARD Myanmar who has been consistently empowering the marginalized sector in Myanmar. Together, we are looking forward to providing more integrated services to economically challenged communities and fulfilling their social needs. This is a great opportunity for all of us to build a sustainable and well-developed society.”
U Nyi Nyein Aye, ThitsaWorks’ CEO, commented “We are excited to partner with CARD Myanmar to help them with their digital transformations. I believe that these reliable and robust systems provided by Musoni will make more effective and efficient changes in the operations of financial institutions, and promote financial inclusion in the country. This will bring positive impacts within the society and we are always welcome to help all MFIs in Myanmar grow.”
