The usage of IT and the capacity of managing IT projects in developing countries are significantly far behind from that of developed countries. Realizing the benefits of using IT, developing countries have tried using it in different sectors but with a high failure rate. The microfinance sector in Bangladesh covers almost one-third of the households of the country through hundreds of microfinance organizations, but has a poor history of unsuccessful IT projects in the majority of cases.
