SDF adds new locations to the ATM network
Sarvodaya Development Finance (SDF) has commissioned 10 ATMs across its island network to empower rural communities.
The new state-of-the-art ATMs will strengthen the financial infrastructure of rural villages, providing local communities with efficient and convenient access to financial services. Recently, SDF unveiled an ATM in Kethsirigama, 22 km from Ampara, adding another convenient access point to its planned network of ATMs.
The 10 ATMs, powered by LankaPay, Sarvodaya Development Finance and NDB Bank, will be installed in the economic centers of the villages and will accept local and international cards.
The ATM network expansion project was carried out in line with SDF’s core mission of empowering rural communities and equipping them with digital financial infrastructure, helping people save time and easily access their finances and to their financial services without mediators.
CEO of Sarvodaya Development Finance, Nilantha Jayanetti, said: “Although the urban areas of Sri Lanka are fully equipped with the resources necessary to function as a developed economy, many of our rural villages are deprived of these resources, which prevents them from to reach their full potential.
“With the launch of the 10 ATMs in various parts of the island, SDF hopes to further empower our rural communities and empower them to grow, be self-sufficient and prosper. These ATMs will provide quick, convenient and easy access to financial services, helping communities on their journey to development,” he said.
