Mr. Finance Bot
Mr Finance is the first interactive financial education app purpose-built for Myanmar. He tells stories, and he gives timely financial advice. Other apps are bulky and complicated. Mr. Finance is as easy as chatting with a familiar friend.
Say Hello to Chatbots
Mr. Finance interacts as a Facebook Messenger Chatbot that both teaches and learns. Myanmar’s mobile phone revolution has been mostly an app-less revolution. Users don’t want to use bandwidth to download, and don’t want to use precious local memory on large and bulky apps. But Mr. Finance lives in chat, and chat is alive and well in Myanmar.
How it Works
Message Based Conversations
Users communicate with Mr Finance via Facebook Messenger and he responds with questions and advice that meets their specific needs.
Financial education is not merely about knowledge transfer, but must engage the emotions. We tell interactive stories that draw in users.
Chatbots never sleep and so a user can ask questions in the middle of a crisis or when they can’t sleep in the middle of the night. Mr. Finance is always available to help!
Mr. Finance speaks both Burmese and English and is willing to learn new languages too!

Quite frankly all of this is the future of Myanmar’s financial sector, and the great hope for the redemption from the trials and tribulations of the past. I have also spoken at length to the State Counselor on this, and she too is greatly impressed – not just of the extraordinary technical innovation represented here, but the optimism and the ‘can do’ spirit it all embodies.
