The entities have been set to become leading MFIs of their respective target markets by replicating the ASA model successfully. This model, for its simplicity, standardization and high level of decentralization, is fast scalable and exceptionally efficient.
The main resources of the ASAI includes its access to the highly skilled and experienced management and staff of ASA, its distinctive model, the strength of the ASAI Micro Banking System (‘AMBS’), its well-capitalized balance sheet, and access to finance from the both international and local sources.
ASA International currently is managed by former senior executives of ASA with full and active support and collaboration of ASA. It provides the senior and middle management for operation and other human resources, technology and microfinance expertise necessary for a rapid international rollout as well as expansion..
