In the face of globalization, countries worldwide must strengthen and deepen their financial systems to achieve growth and alleviate poverty.
FS Series #11: Innovations in Financial Services Delivery – Branchless Banking.
Paper | June 30, 2010
From USAID’s Financial Sector Knowledge Sharing Project (FS Share) is a primer offering case studies, covering business models and partnerships, relevant to branchless banking and how technology can offer tools and services to facilitate this. Examples of these tools include card-based, mobile phone-based, or other ICT-based devices.
This primer’s objective is to provide U.S. government program designers with a basic technical understanding of branchless banking as a sustainable approach to increase access to financial services. The primer is designed as a practical tool to enable program designers to integrate best practices and lessons learned into effective economic growth programming.
