Mix Market Data Visualization

Microfinance and Open Data

The Microfinance Information Exchange (MIX) is the premier source for microfinance data and a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, DC with regional offices in Azerbaijan, Peru, Morocco, and India. Their mission is to promote microfinance transparency and strengthen the microfinance sector through objective data and analysis. 

MIX came to Gorton Studios with an existing website. Through 2010 and 2011 we worked on a series of features, the largest of which is a Data Visualization framework. MIX's database contains an incredible wealth of information on the Microfinance industry, but much of that information was accessible to visitors in very limited ways; more and better access was needed.

To solve this problem, we designed and built an interactive data visualization framework which allows site visitors to access the full extent of MIX's database, build custom reports and download the data for further analysis. Visitors can save and share reports, manipulate graphs and choices as well as access all of the raw data powering the site and MIX's own analyses.
