Pact global microfinance in Myanmar

Southtech won the bet!

Pact Global Microfinance Fund, Myanmar (PGMF), is the longest-serving NGO in Myanmar that required complete automation of paper-based operations of their 192 branches. While 2 other foreign companies failed the implementation after 2.5 years, Southtech completed it in a span of 7 months by employees in Bangladesh and Bhutan.

Our delivery date was challenged and a friendly bet ensued between PGMF and Southtech’s management teams. If Southtech failed to deliver on time, PGMF would fine $500 for everyday delayed and vice-versa.

Southtech won the bet!
