2015 Google Summer of Code

The Mifos Initiative is looking forward to participating in Google Summer of Code for our third consecutive year as the independent Mifos Initiative and our fifth overall. We've grown from four to seven interns and look to continue that growth with students working on a wide variety of projects across our Java platform, AngularJS community app, and Android mobile apps.
