Welcome to the Savings Groups Information Exchange
The SAVIX is a reporting system that provides transparent and standardised data on community-managed microfinance.
The SAVIX collects and validates financial and operational data from more than 70,000 savings groups and 137 projects, promoted by 6 facilitating agencies in 23 countries in the developing world.
Benchmarking and informed decision-making are critical to achieve high-quality programme results and the aim of the site is to facilitate analysis, develop norms and improve performance across the sector.
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.
