...A Microfinance MIS: Mifos Database STUDENT University of Phoenix BIS 219 Introduction to Business Information Systems INSTRUCTOR DATE A Microfinance MIS: Mifos Database Mifos is a management information system designed to microfinance institutions in developing countries. Management information systems (MIS), such as Mifos “deal with the planning for, development, management, and use of information technology tools to help people perform all tasks related to information processing and management” (Rainer & Turban, 2008, p.24). Mifos allows running social and business reports as well as analysis, managing clients, savings, and loans portfolio. Mifos offers several advantages to its users such as efficiency and ease, growth and scalability, social and business impact, flexibility and agility, security and data integrity, among others. Mifos runs on top of a MySQL database (Grameen Foundation, 2008). A MySQL database is commonly used in web applications and for data storage and logging of user data (i.e. Facebook). The Mifos database definitely has structures for account authentication, authorization, and administration. The above operations are usually grouped together under one component of the application. The bulk of the application is used to review loan officers, branches, loans, and so forth; so, there will be tables for each of those. Those tables will hold the data that supports the business logic for the application. Mifos includes......

...money to MFIs who would then on-lend funds, primarily to poor women across rural India. The banks have welcomed this policy because historically they tended to charge MFIs average interest rates of 12-13% and benefited from 100% repayment rates. Microfinance in India is currently being provided by three sectors: the government, the private sector and charities. These three sectors, as large as they are, have only a small fraction of the capital and geographic scale required to meet the overwhelming need for finance amongst India’s rural poor. The top 10 private sector microfinance providers in India together serve less than 5% of the unbanked population of India – approximately 20 million clients. For example, SHARE Microfin Limited (“SHARE”) and Asmitha Microfin Limited (“Asmitha”), two of the five largest MFIs in India, have almost Rs 4,000 crore ($900MM) loaned to over 5 million poor women in 18 Indian states (prior to the crisis, the combined outstanding loan portfolio had been as high as Rs 6,750 crore ($1.525BN)). Yet, despite the size of MFIs like SHARE and Asmitha, only a fraction of the overwhelming need is being met. Private sector MFIs have an essential role to play if the goal of financial inclusion is to be realized, as neither the government nor charities have the capital nor business model required to meet the insatiable demand for finance in rural India. As the public listing of SKS Microfinance underscored, private sector institutions are able to......

It also affirmed the (P)Baa3 ratings on the bank's and its branches' senior unsecured medium-term note (MTN) program, and the Baa3 rating on the senior unsecured debt issued from its London branch. • iKaaz develops a low-cost point-of-sale (PoS) terminal. Payment company iKaaz, which specializes in near-field communication (NFC), has developed a low-cost point-of-sale (PoS) terminal which enables customers to 'tap and pay' even without an NFC-enabled card or phone. The terminal, which is made in India, is available for Rs. 3,000 less than a fourth the cost of conventional swipe machines. The company has tied up with 3,000 merchants in Bangalore and is in the process of rolling it out all India. • Microfin companies will soon have up to Rs. 450 crore more to lend. Nearly five lakh households in rural and semiurban areas could benefit as the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Chennaibased partner IFMR Capital is planning to release Rs. 400-450 crore credit to microfinance institutions (MFIs) in the second series of disbursement after a gap of about three years. The development comes as the MFI industry, once mired in deep trouble, appears to have recovered in tandem with the signs of improvement in the economy and has left behind the Andhra Pradesh crisis that resulted in huge loan defaults. According to the industry, the average disbursal is Rs. 15 crore per MFI, which provides loans of Rs. 10,000-15,000 to each borrower. In the first......

Website Report of Swimming

...which can be divided into two core parts. For the first part, it is the swimming theory. The readers, especially for the beginning, can refer to the “Swimmer Experiences”, “Swimming technique” and “Swimming advice”. Not only words, there are many pictures and videos to explain the theory so that the readers can clearly understand the complicated theory. Apart from the theory, there is online shop for the swimming products. Except the swimming basis, there are some poolside products which can let the swimming process more convenient, like Goggle Case and lens cleans. These two products can protect the goggle. Moreover, there are training aids for the swimmers to improve their swimming skills while practise. For instance, the Sphere Microfin Hp and Sphere Fitness Gloves can help the swimmer to feel the strength of hands and legs. C. Name any information from the website that can help to improve your swimming skill. These two parts of the website provide some basic reminder for the swimmers, as the writers of the blogs focus on some common problems that the swimmer will face. One of them is quite inspiring, it is about breathing. Unlike the traditional way of teaching beginner to swim which is “blowing bubbles”. The website suggest people to learn breathing by singing. While singing, the lips can break the water surface and some air will be inhaled. The website also encourage swimmer to apply the Alexander Technique because most of the problems in swimming......

Scaling Up Access to Finance for India's Rural Poor

...result of such initiatives the MFI sector has grown at a fast rate over the last six years or so. Some of these MFIs are based on the Grameen model. Others promote and establish financial links with SHGs. The MFIs offer some of the features of the informal sector such as flexible products, customer friendly practices but at a higher interest rate[42] than formal sector, while bringing in some features of the formal institutions – such as documented loan contracts, detailed books of accounts, MIS, staff, and some degree of supervision by a regulatory authority. Over the past decade, the number of MFIs in India has grown. However, with a few exceptions, most MFIs in India are very region specific, small in size—the largest being SHARE Microfin Ltd with loans outstanding of about Rs 50 crore and BASIX of Rs 35 crore in March, 2003—and their collective outreach has been limited. In March 2003, the MFIs sector as a whole had outstandings of Rs 240 crore ($52 million) reaching less than one million borrowers. One estimate indicates that the average loans disbursed by the top 10 MFIs amounted to just Rs 16 crore per MFI. Another estimate, based on 69 rated MFIs (which are among India’s top 100 MFIs), shows that these MFIs had about 6500 borrowers and Rs 2.3 crore loan outstanding, per MFI. (Sinha, 2003). In comparison, MFIs in Bangladesh are estimated to reach more than 60% of the poor in the country with the larger programs such as Grameen Bank, BRAC, Proshika and......
