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.

The solution: ASHI’s growth and business benefits with Instafin and the Instafin Field Officer App

To maximise its benefits, ASHI implemented Instafin and its Additional Service: Instafin Field Officer App.

Using Oradian’s core banking system, Instafin

  • With just a few clicks, ASHI can now access and consolidate real-time data from all its 60 branches.
  • ASHI’s data quality is improved by 80%.
  • ASHI’s staff can now upload data to Instafin within 2-3 minutes.
  • ASHI saved 70% of the time they used to spend on manually collecting data.

Using the Instafin Field Officer App: 

  • Fields officers plan their field visits more efficiently: accurate digitised data, paperless process.
  • Data consolidated from all branches and during the field visits is synchronised automatically with Instafin.
  • Field officers use the additional time to reach out to new clients.
  • Reduced operational costs.
