Drupal for Microfinance

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

Microfinance is the provision of financial services to low-income clients, including consumers and the self-employed, who traditionally lack access to banking and related services.

More broadly, it is a movement whose object is "a world in which as many poor and near-poor households as possible have permanent access to an appropriate range of high quality financial services, including not just credit but also savings, insurance, and fund transfers. Those who promote microfinance generally believe that such access will help poor people out of poverty.

Please read more about it at Microfinance at Wikipedia

The organizations operating on microfinance to fight poverty have little or no funds to support their IT needs and could easily be address by the use of Drupal.

This group is nothing but to aware people having a need of IT (para-banking softwares, loan-tracking softwares etc) for their smooth operations of fight to end the poverty in our modern world.

Lets join hands with them by extending your help by creating a software solutions for their(MIFOS) back office need in a open source way.

Drupal for Microfinance industry as a low cost solution for their IT need

Micro-finance and micro-credit the noble concepts to help the poor people of the developing world is changing the perspective of financial sectors in a rapid way. The growth of MFI organizations are growing in rapid speed through out the world and for a good cause.

We are very much in the position to say that Microfinance and Microcredit are re-writing the developing world's socio-economic dynamics.

As per the report by mixmarket the 1810 MFI organization are operating in various part of the world with a gross loan portfolio of USD 39.5 billion (upto 2008) and distributed among USD 71.6 million borrower with average loan balance per borrower USD 572.8.

We can easily imagine the volume of data to be processed and maintain to generate and operate of this sum of amount. Managing risks of portfolio could be better managed with the help of Information Technology. But there are several Microfinance organizations exists who are unable to take advantage of IT and thus lacking their growth and in turn people needs their help loosing opportunity for a better life.
