Sandbox

APIX Sandbox is a collaborative Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that simulates the characteristics of a bank-grade production environment. It allows developers to plug their API codes with other APIs from APIX Marketplace to create innovative solutions for the financial services industry. The Sandbox also offers an interface to a live Core banking application and an ability to import or export data via external sources like GitHub.

What APIX Sandbox has to offer

APIX Sandbox contains a large catalogue of APIs which users can subscribe to. Developers can use this Low-Code/No-Code environment to create and edit code, and integrate APIs across different solution domains such as core banking, payments, digital currency and many more. Data can be provisioned in a secure environment by the Financial Institutions to validate the efficacy of the solutions tailored.

GreenArc Impact Module
GreenArc Capital

By establishing a Theory of Change, GreenArc is able to set a methodology which enables the API to capture, measure and evaluate social outcomes with respect to financial inclusion. Our impact framework has been developed using GIIN’s IRIS+ indicators, which are informed by the norms agreed via the Impact Management Project (IMP). We have identified and mapped a set of social impact indicators, taking into account the different sectors in which MSMEs and base of the pyramid populations operate, as well as the associated UN SDGs. 1. Loans in a given portfolio are classified and aggregated into impact sectors and aligned with SDGs 2. The API user inputs the relevant impact metrics data at the outset and repayment of the loans 3. An impact score is computed for each loan and each portfolio 4. Benchmarking allows impact performance comparison The required set of impact metrics are provided to the API user. This data is then analysed and consolidated into an impact score and used for social reporting to investors. This is done for each individual loan, with the data collected twice, once at the outset of the loan, and then at repayment. Using this data allows the user to ascertain whether they are reaching their target beneficiaries, as well as to track the change in their social and/or economic circumstances over the term of the loan. The API evaluates actual social outcomes rather than just outputs.  MSME impact metrics include:  * Employee diversification by gender * Ownership diversification by gender * Wage equality to measure fair compensation * Education levels * Age demographics * Sector breakdown With respect to low-income and unbanked individuals, data collection includes:  * Access to essential products and services such as healthcare, education and food, * Recipient breakdown by gender * Income level * Number of dependents on income and loan proceeds * Whether they live in a rural versus urban setting Our impact indicators capture data related to the socio-economic status of the end beneficiaries, and how this changes during the term of the loans.  For an MSME, key factors to improve their financial security include change in revenue, indicating stability and improvement of the financial status of the business, allowing them to invest in better infrastructure & technology, skills training for employees, increased wages and greater financial security in times of shocks due to improved cash flows. Our framework captures this information with metrics pertaining to the use of loan proceeds and employee welfare, as stated above.  A key component of how we evaluate impact is how this information changes throughout the loan term, enabling us to ascertain the social and economic benefits facilitated by the credit loans. We also measure the negative impact risk; how the beneficiary’s circumstances would be impacted if they did not receive the loan e.g an MSME may not be able to invest in infrastructure or technology, preventing them from improving their production efficiency and building their financial resilience. An individual may not be able to pay for medical bills, or pursue further education, preventing them from seeking better and more stable employment opportunities which provides financial security.
