I recently set up a section on Mifos.org to highlight how our open source toolset can be harnessed to help fintechs and financial institutions respond to COVID-19 to help weather the economic storm for the underbanked.
It includes messaging around how our open source building blocks can be used to rapidly open accounts and enable G2P payments, low-cost digitization of operations, rolling out digital payments and delivery channels, etc.
You can access it at https://mifos.org/take-action/covid-19/
It also includes a video James recently produced for his tech demo at the Global Digital Development Forum outlining this rapid deployment approach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSkpG3FS2KU&feature=emb_logo
James also documented the role of Fineract during this pandemic at https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FINERACT/2020/05/05/Fineract+in+the+Time+of+COVID-19 and also co-authored an article on NextBillion.net on the impact of this on the informal economy: https://nextbillion.net/informal-economy-complicating-covid19-response/
One section I would like I would like to create and expand upon is a showcase of partners and users of Mifos/Fineract and/or solutions powered by it and how they’re using their solution, the flexibility of our APIs, or the delivery channels you’ve built to help in the COVID-19 response. i.e. rescheduling loans, providing moratoriums on payments, enabling digital payments, rolling out branchless operations, etc.
Please reach out to me with a few details on how you’ve helped your local financial institutions be nimble in responding to the pandemic - I would love to show firsthand how our community and open stack is having an impact.
