Meet Marie -
Marie-Claire Ayurwanda of Rwanda survived the death of two husbands. Empowered by a tiny loan, she was able to build her business, then build a home for her four children and then start another business in her village to employ others. Marie’s triumphant escape from poverty is our motivation. There are literally millions of Maries who with a little empowerment make transformative change.
The Mifos Initiative’s sole mission is to speed the elimination of poverty through Mifos X - a free and open source financial platform to deliver financial services to the world’s poor and unbanked. We are reaching 3.5 million account holders in the developing world with 40 deployment partners, but this is a drop in the bucket of overall need. These partners all have the social mission of serving the poor in their regions. To continue this critical work, The Mifos Initiative needs funds to continue to build capacity on the ground with people that participate in the financial inclusion world.
The Mifos Initiative vision is to establish a fund dedicated to deployment assistance in the developing world. One deployment partner may need to hire a trainer, one may need outreach, one may need a report writer, one may need custom development - each global deployment partner has a different need. We want to help their business grow by offering some assistance to them. This takes money.
Help us help the global community that lives on $2 a day by bringing free & open source banking services to them.
