I interviewed Nino Gonjilashvili, CEO of VisionFund Mexico, about what they are doing to serve their clients and protect their staff during the coronavirus crisis.

Some of the decisive action taken by VisionFund Mexico includes:

  • Ramping up sales of their health insurance product
  • Adapting their health insurance product to be able to sell it to the general public
  • Stopping all group meetings
  • Having staff follow up with clients by phone and text
  • Extending office hours at branches to limit crowding
  • Developing alternative ways to receive payments
  • Creating a loan restructuring policy that will allow a grace period of 2-3 months and then a longer repayment period to reduce the size of payments.

Nino was one of the first to fill out the survey on how financial service providers are responding to the coronavirus crisis. If your organization has not completed the survey, please click on this link to fill it out.
