Description

The Mifos Initiative is a 501(c)3 non-profit incorporated in Washington state whose mission is to speed the elimination of poverty by enabling financial service providers to more effectively and efficiently deliver responsible financial services to the world’s 2.5 billion poor and unbanked. We guide the development of the Mifos X platform, an open platform for financial inclusion with a suite of simple configurable apps hosted in the cloud. We are a community of financial service providers, technology specialists, financial services experts and open source developers working together to grow this platform. Mifos X consists of 1) the platform (A RESTful back-end which talks to a to a MySQL database and is built on the Jersey/Spring/JPA stack) and 2) the community app (AngularJS app which provides support for the most commonly used financial inclusion models) as well as 3) RESTful APIs from our platform accessing all the core underlying functionality to enable the community to quickly build their own enterprise grade financial inclusion products/apps on any technology stack.
