The Significant impact of computer technology has led to increasing recognition that data is source that has volume and therefore needs to be organized, securely stored and managed Thus the success of any organization that provides any service greatly depends on availability, consistence, reliability and correctness of the information. Therefore it is a duty of the organization to ensure that their data and records are well organized and managed efficiently. This project is aimed at developing an Automated records management system for Mehta Group.Microfinance as opposed to manual system which involves manual filling system and has proved to be time consuming and hectic when updating records. The study has taken in an effort to portray how records can be managed through automation and its importance to the records manager, members as well as Mehta Group Microfinance clients.This paragraph simply explains how the researcher achieved all the desired goals. In the first chapter, the researcher gave an overview of the system, its objectives, scope and justification of the study. Further research was carried out on different literatures to get information on how to deal with similar problems of the Microfinance. Different literature was gathered from Electronic books and other online sources as shown in chapter two. The researcher used different methods and techniques to gather data from within and outside the organization which included interviews, observation, questionnaire and document review. After data gathering and analysis, design was made using bottom-up approach for entity relationship diagram (ERD) which is the approach for the design of simple databases with relatively small number of attributes. During the design, specific requirements were used which included both software and hardware to fasten the designing process and implementation. System testing was done using unit testing, system testing, acceptance testing and then presented to the users to verify whether it satisfies their need and was proved right.
