A digitally inclusive solution to sustain VisionFund Lanka’s client pool, this strategic partnership has revolutionized the microfinance loan repayment system with the launch of the QR card loan repayment facility.

As of 2019, VisionFund Lanka has been serving over 30,000 families in rural areas across the island, empowering small and SME businesses with much needed financial support.
As a progressive step forward in VisionFund Lanka’s digitization journey, Dinesh Kanagaratnam, CEO of VisionFund Lanka said “The timing of this launch is opportune as the need for faster, safer and easier ways of conducting financial transactions is vital, now more than ever – and we are excited to be able to extend this facility to our clients predominantly living in rural settings. We are happy to partner with Dialog on this journey of ours to serve sustainably and will continue to explore innovative solutions to provide easily-accessible financial facilities to the communities we serve.”
