Sharma says it has been a very exciting and challenging journey for the last 20 months for the change, where the first phase of cutover was done on 24th August 2020 and gradually other aspects of the business moved to the new platform, which has online loan approvals, automated documentation and even can be operated from the cane fields.

Sharma adds that the Fund acquired a modern and robust Information Technology System from an Indian ICT provider- Sesame Software Pvt Ltd, who have co-partnered with local provider Datec Fiji Ltd.’
