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.

We use open source technology and the power of community to scale financial inclusion worldwide to achieve our shared vision of creating a world of 3 Billion Maries, a world where each individual has access to the financial services to create a better life for themself and their family. The Mifos project was launched by Grameen Foundation in 2006 and spun out as its own separate non-profit initiative in 2011. Currently more than 1.2 million clients are being served by the 50+ financial institutions using our software.
