Total commitment to microfinance

Microfinance is an incredibly fast-growing sector with huge needs in structuring: our mission is to make available as widely as possible a robust and intuitive technology, committed to streamlining microfinance operations. Octopus stands out for taking best practices from the microfinance community – in the field and expert world. We created Octopus in 2006 as a response to the lack of affordable and reliable MIS in microfinance. Since then, microfinance is our sole domain, in which we dedicate all our energy and expertise.

Full commitment to our clients

Octopus is the brainchild of the OXUS Group, an international microfinance network that noted the lack of MIS in touch with the realities of microfinance institutions. Today, Octopus benefits from a global network of users, clients, value-added resellers and local teams, but remains motivated by the same initial intuition: it’s the client who makes the MIS. This mind-set brings us to a deep understanding of each client’s needs, and therefore we provide tailor-made solutions. With users in more than 60 countries, we know better than anyone else that each microfinance institution has its specific practices and its own market rules.


We constantly strive to identify the most critical needs of our clients, and through continuous innovation we challenge ourselves to meet those needs. Through inventive processes and unique solutions, we provide unmatched value to our customers. Thereby, after the successful implementation of Octopus in your institution, our technology will continue to be improved according to your ideas and needs, while guaranteeing the integrity of the functionalities already developed and implemented for you. The ambition of Octopus is to support you into continuous dynamic improvement. Innovation is up to you, Octopus will channel it.

Access for all

We know how to leverage the best from technology to efficiently improve the microfinance sector, and we want as many as institutions to benefit from it, to maximise our social impact. Octopus is guided by a commitment to deliver the highest product quality, affordable for all through our Octopus Community edition.
