Nature and Context

A key barrier for low-income people obtaining financial independence is a lack of trust in the new digital form of money, and solutions where mobile money agents play a role can aid in building that trust. The hope is that providing access to mobile money also enables access to digital financial services in a way that previously was not possible for underserved and underbanked communities. Access to savings and loans has the potential to stabilize volatile incomes and enable financial growth.
