Survey on Funds and Loans Management Systems

Below is the Survey on Funds and Loan Management Systems for DFIs which has a two-fold objective:

(1)to ascertain the needs of ADFIAP member-institutions for information systems that will enable processing efficiency for handling and managing two areas of bank operations: (a) bank borrowings – foreign commercial loans, local commercial loans and ODA development funds; and, (b) bank lending – credit line or term loan; commercial, consumer and microfinance; wholesale and retail lending; and,

(2) to determine if there exists a critical mass of ADFIAP members that would be interested in acquiring a loans information system under a technical-assistance funding, through a fund-matching assistance to be offered by the envisioned information solutions project.
