Impact: Mohit joined the Mifos team in March 2016 as a GSOC intern. He quickly went to work on adding browser-based offline access to the Community Application. Then he continued his outstanding work as a Google Code In mentor and tackled the remaining bugs in the re-skin so it could be finalized and published to the Mifos community.
Mohit established himself as a leader as he became the maintainer of the re-skin branch all on his own doing. He’s been mentoring other contributors, squashing lots of bugs, and reviewing and merging incoming pull requests.

Mohit found his GSOC internship with the Mifos Initiative very beneficial and informative. We were truly amazed at how quickly he was able to retain new information and transform into one of the community leaders.
