This paper by the GSMA presents a new index for the global mobile money industry – the Mobile Money Prevalence Index (MMPI). It is the first time a global index has been created with the purpose of measuring the prevalence of mobile money at country level. The MMPI considers a set of mobile money metrics in order to facilitate comparisons between markets, thereby enabling third parties to gauge whether engagement would lead to expected impact. The purpose of the index is to support decision making for public and private stakeholders alike.
