The SAVIX is a reporting system that provides transparent and standardised data on Savings Group programmes worldwide.

For the last 5 years the SAVIX has regularly collected financial and operational data from a current total of about 3 million members in 137,000 savings groups, created by 315 projects, in 31 countries worldwide.  It does this through automatic, real-time posting through the SAVIX MIS database. 

The aim of the site is to facilitate analysis and improve programme results, by comparing regional, country, project and trainer performance. 


Projects

icon Projects

A project represents a cluster of groups formed either by a facilitating agency or its local partners.  In this section, users can review the details of a single project or a group of projects (organised by agency, region, country or a number of other filters) using their own choice of filters and metrics.

Sample question: What is the ratio of savings to credit for all projects of two specific facilitating agencies in Kenya and what are the key portfolio and performance ratios for any single project?

Research

icon Projects

The SAVIX tracks the long-term performance of a randomised sample of 332 independent savings groups established by 33 projects in Asia and Africa.  In this section, users can review the long-term performance of this cohort and conduct trend analysis with their own choice of filters and metrics.

Sample question: Compare the key performance ratios of the panel survey in 2010 with those of 2011
