There is no provision for split disbursal in the current version of Mifos. For housing micro-finance this is a must to have feature as every tranche is released after the engineer's assessment regarding the progress of construction. It is impossible for us to start the product without this feature.
I noticed Mifos currently does not support partial disbursement, I also believe this is something developers needs to look at as this kind of loans are common in Kenya.
get more requirements around this. by talking to custoemrs
Is this enhancement planned for Vinolia I?
I got some basic information on how we can go about partial disbursements, we dont need to do fresh development of the feature but enhance the current loan product setup.
I will do a small write up if you want to include this in this release.
No. this enhancement is a part of our longer term roadmap. But having a write up would definitely help.
There is a very big need for this functionality - question is how much effort it would take to implement based on a more detailed spec.
