2014 Google Summer of Code

The Mifos Initiative is proud to be participating in our second consecutive Google Summer of Code and our fourth overall. Building off of the four interns, we graduated last year, we'll be mentoring a set of seven interns this summer. They will be working on a wide variety of projects that will bring exciting new features to the community this summer and beyond.
