About Finance One
Finance One is a Simple Finance application which will teach the OLPC users various aspects of banking and in general cost maintenance. It would provide a simple income / expense register, monthly tracking and help the students mainatin their accounts. Learning and having an idea of finance matters is very important in today`s world. This application just tries to do the same.
Features of the App. (Expected)
1) a simple income / expense register
2) monthly expense tracker
3) budget planner
4) expense & income categories separately to keep a check on, how much money is saved actually.
5) a loan calculator.
6) I would like to add another feature where-in a OLPC user will have an online identity in a separate Finance portal meant separately for the OLPC users. Here OLPC user can keep a track of the loans he/she has taken from a friend , and thus the loan data may also be visible to other OLPC finance users. Thus other users will also be able to know whether to deal money with a particular user or not. This will make money-lending more reliable and simpler.
7) The idea can later be extended to include proper bank transactions. Where in options for internet-banking will be incorporated for easy and safe banking, hassle free of course.
8) Also I have an idea for implementing a model barter system the details of which I will file in my OLPC GSoC application.
