To support financial inclusion advocates and our partners in this sector, the FSP program has developed a research brief that outlines key findings on the impact of mobile money on poverty. The document shares rigorous evidence from a range of studies about the effects of mobile money on individuals and households and about the user experience of payment transfers enabled by mobile phones.

The data in the brief is sourced from a variety of mobile money providers and platforms in countries including Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Bangladesh, Uganda, Malawi, Niger, and Sri Lanka.
