The Mifos Initiative is a 501(c)3 non-profit and FinTech pioneer guiding the community developing the Apache Fineract platform for financial inclusion, an open source financial service engine providing a cloud-based API-driven architecture for scaling digital financial services to the world’s 2 billion poor & unbanked. We aim to create a world of 3 Billion Maries where each of the 2 billion poor and unbanked has access to the financial resources needed to create a better life for themselves and their family. We guide a network of 100+ partners supporting 300 financial institutions & fintech innovators using digital banking solutions powered by our open APIs to reach more than 7 million clients.

"I am the President/CEO of the Mifos Initiative. Championing our open source community for the past 11 years, I am passionate about the intersection between fintech, financial inclusion and open source community. Unifying technologists worldwide on top of an open platform with ideas shared across a global community is the only way we can help bank the billions that are underbanked."
The goal of this project is to build a more inclusive web developer community. While there are many ways to do this, we need to narrow our focus to a starting point. When you look at the Stack Overflow and GitHub surveys, the demographics are fairly skewed toward one narrow demographic. In this project, let’s create a new developer survey. Let’s actively promote it across intentionally inclusive platforms, keeping track of our metrics over time. We will build a campaign around this survey, a newsletter, a community, all toward first representing the parts of the existing web developer community that may not have a voice yet, and next, growing the community to include a much more diverse group of developers.
