Mifos X is an API-driven open platform for financial inclusion with a suite of simple configurable apps hosted in the cloud, immediately available for deployment worldwide.
Mifos X is led by the Mifos Initiative, a 501(c)3 non-profit that guides the community of financial service providers, technology specialists, financial services experts and open source developers working together to grow the Mifos open source platform for financial inclusion.
Our goal 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.
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.
I lead the Mifos community and help to run the Mifos Initiative, the non-profit guiding the project.
