This paper from the GSMA aims to shed light on the opportunities created by M2M solutions to reach and empower underserved populations in the developing world. The emergence of new business models leveraging GSM connectivity for remote operation and monitoring is already helping tens of thousands of people gain access to more affordable and sustainable basic life services. The development of “Pay As You Go” solutions combining the use of M2M technology to mobile money services, provides a microfinance element where the credit on a user’s account can be checked remotely, enabling low income consumers access what would have been normally prohibitively expensive goods/services.
