Research Team: Akshai Abraham, Prabu Raja
LEAD Centre: Centre for Development Finance (CDF)
Focus Area:
Project Geography:


The Development Metrics team is creating a website for mapping KGFS microfinance villages, hubs, branches and customers. The team will be using the existing database of customers and modifying it to link with geographical locations for each branch and customer thus creating a web-enabled GIS platform which can be used for various analytical metrics as well as planning and monitoring. The team has adopted a unique approach of training members of the IFMR Trust throughout the development phase of the project so that their capacities are built simultaneously and by the end of the project they are in a position to manage the site on their own and modify the platform as and when necessary.
