Open Source Software Empowering Organizations to Create Interoperable Digital Payment Systems to Increase Financial Inclusion

What is Mojaloop?

Mojaloop was designed to provide a reference model for payment interoperability, that can be used to overcome barriers that have slowed the spread of digital financial services. Whole, adapted, or as a blueprint – the Mojaloop Foundation’s open source software can be used by organizations to build interoperable, digital payment systems that enable seamless, affordable financial services between individual users, banks, government entities, merchants, mobile network operators, providers, and technology companies – connecting the underserved with the emerging digital economy.

  • A major payments processor can use the software to modernize its current offering to achieve lower transaction costs without major R&D investments
  • A fintech startup can use the code to understand how to implement with interoperable payments APIs
  • A bank can use the code to modify its internal systems so that they easily interoperate with other payments providers
