MIX promotes responsible financial services for underserved communities through data analytics and market insight. We do this through two decision support platforms, MIX Market and FINclusion Lab. As basic infrastructure for responsible and inclusive markets, these platforms provide a necessary ecosystem to enable and inspire coordinated investment, effective policy, and positive social outcomes for the financially underserved.
Incorporated in 2002, MIX is a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, DC with regional offices in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Our efforts are strengthened through our collaboration with the following global partners: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CGAP, The MasterCard Foundation, IFAD, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, DFID, and Citi Foundation. MIX leverages an ideal solution model to ensure the sustainability and public good of our platforms.
MIX Market (www.mixmarket.org) is a data hub where microfinance institutions (MFIs) and supporting organizations share institutional data to broaden transparency and market insight. This exchange enables users to establish reporting standards, alleviate reporting burden, and promote responsible investment. Supported by validated social and financial performance data, MIX Market provides analysis on risks and opportunities in the markets where MFIs operate.
FINclusion Lab (www.finclusionlab.org) is an analysis and data visualization workshop designed to inspire the coordinated delivery of responsible financial services to underserved communities. FINclusion Lab tools enable users to analyze the access, quality, and usage of financial services for excluded communities at national and sub-national levels. Transforming financial inclusion data into insight, FINclusion Lab allows policy makers and financial service providers to optimize their strategies and measure progress toward national goals.
