Leading Microfinance Firm Gets Deeper Visibility Into Field Agents With Dista


The microfinance organization wanted to increase business penetration in rural areas and get complete visibility into its field force operations. The company leveraged Dista’s platform for automated scheduling and faster loan disbursal.
