Filipino Microfinance Institution Deploys SD-WAN to Boost Network Reliability and Improve the Lives of Women in Rural Communities

The Digital Performance Company™, today announced that Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), one of the Philippines’ oldest and largest microfinance institutions, is advancing the human experience in the digital world through next-generation infrastructure from Riverbed. The solution transforms the way NWTF connects its clients to convenient, secure financial services, and to deliver a digital experience on par with larger commercialized banks. NWTF is an NGO that helps women in the country – particularly in rural communities - move out of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency and self-reliance through microloans.

NWTF’s legacy network was challenged with limited growth, agility and low digital performance; there was also limited visibility into what was happening in the network – any changes to the network had to be done manually, resulting in higher costs. As a result, the organization was limited in its ability to expand its life-changing services to reach women and communities that needed it the most.
