Volunteer with the Mifos Initiative to help microfinance institutions (MFIs) around the world use technology to empower the poor to lift themselves out of poverty. Mifos is an open-source web-based information technology platform to allow MFIs to manage their loan portfolios and track their clients’ progress out of poverty in one centralized place. Leveraging the power of the web, Mifos enables MFIs to rapidly grow and more effectively deliver financial services to the poor.
There are many ways to contribute your time and skills during Mozilla Service Week to advance the Mifos platform and accelerate the growth of microfinance through the web. From helping MFIs save on IT costs while opening new branches, to making Mifos accessible to MFIs of all languages around the globe, you can use the power of open source web-based technology in the fight against global poverty.
