How ASHI grew with Oradian’s cloud-based core banking system
Ahon sa Hirap, Inc. (ASHI) is a Microfinance NGO that provides financial services to female entrepreneurs in remote and underserved areas. It was founded in 1989 as an action research project and now it has 60 branches in nine provinces of the Philippines.
The challenge: Inefficiency and cumbersome manual processes
Before implementing Oradian’s cloud-based core banking system, Instafin, it took ASHI’s staff a long time to consolidate data in order to make informed decisions. ASHI faced several challenges that prevented their growth:
No access to real-time data.
Inability to quickly produce and collect information and data from all branches.
ASHI’s field officers spent much time on administration and manual processes instead of focusing on the core business and reaching to more clients.
“We saved 70% of the time we used to spend collecting data manually and 90% of the time on data input.” — Estrella Andres, Managing Director of ASHI.
