Starting a mobile money business can be difficult. This 5-week course is designed to help professionals start or build businesses providing financial services on mobile devices.

Drawing on practical, real-world examples, students will gain an understanding of what a successful mobile money business looks like and what specific support and tools they need to become self-sufficient and resilient.
