At the end of September 2017, Funding Societies (Modalku) won the Global SME Excellence Award during the ITU Telecom World Awards, held this year at Busan, South Korea. The honour makes Funding Societies (Modalku) the first Southeast Asian company to win the award. The Global SME Excellence Award recognizes the most promising and innovative information and communication technology solutions developed by SMEs to deliver social impact. This year, Funding Societies (Modalku) beat hundreds of other applicants to take the prize.

Every year, an international panel of International Telecommunication Union (ITU) judges, comprising global experts, selects the SME that most represents the award. ITU Telecom is United Nations’ neutral and not-for-profit platform, instrumental in bringing technological innovations to global communities.

We are proud and honoured to be recognized by global organizations for creating positive impact in Southeast Asia. Supporting underserved SMEs and fostering financial inclusion have always been Funding Societies (Modalku)’s key focus areas. Going forward, the award will push Funding Societies (Modalku) to continuously improve and serve the region.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the support and trust that our users have shown us. Let’s create “stronger societies” together.
