Swosti – Mobile Credit Card (MCC)
Access to credit especially during the time of emergency is a critical need for any human being. With the need approaching, people tries to mitigate this emergency fund requirements through different methods including costly borrowing from unscrupulous money lenders. Bdjobs.com Management through its long experience in the IT and ITS services thought of introducing ITS to support this emergency credit needs of underprivileged people of Bangladesh. It introduced Mobile based emergency credit system ‘Swosti- Mobile Credit Card (MCC)’. Credit range was in between BDT3,000 ~ BDT10,000; which can be sought with a simple sms push from the beneficiary member mobile and the money is available instantly through Mobile Banking Agents or ATM Booths. This money was a great respite to mitigate emergency situations like medical, child school fee, special family occasion etc. for the underprivileged people having no access to conventional banking system. This concept of emergency loan through Mobile received ‘mBillionth Award-2014’ from New Delhi, India.
We partnered with DSK and DBBL
Swosti partnered with DSK (Dushtha Shasthya Kendra), a national NGO and Micro Finance Institution (MFI) to rollout the MCC among its beneficiary members using DBBL Mobile Banking Platform, Rocket.
Swosti – MCC was launched on September 4, 2013 by Dr. Atiur Rahman, Bangladesh Bank Governor where Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, PKSF Chairman was the special guest. The concept of Swosti-Emergency Loan brought much vibration and appreciation in the local market and local media published the launching news with due prominence.

Swosti – mfi247
Backed by knowledge in IT & ITS enabled services specially in Mobile technology and Micro-credit domain, Swosti Ltd. introduced 1st Mobile/TAB based paperless Micro credit Management application in December, 2014. This application made tenuous loan & savings collection & withdrawal activities a fun, in a much simpler and easier way for the Credit Officer / Field Officer of an MFI. It does not engage any data entry operator or Accountant in a MFI branch. Manual record keeping gets drastically reduced. This reduces time and effort needed by MFI staff. Ultimately it benefits MFI by reducing operational cost through less stationery, printing, human engagement.
Now, we are an organization with a mission to improvise MFIs to their loan activities to alleviate poverty through our mobile and web application. With the help of MFI’s and by leveraging the internet and a worldwide network, Swosti lets individuals lend money to help create limitless opportunities across the country.
