  • Only Tough Options: Mobile money in rural, low-infrastructure communities

    09/11/2015 Duración: 01h08min

    On September 4th 2015, SIMLab hosted a Brown Bag Lunch at the OpenGov Hub in DC, an informal session for colleagues in the technology and development community. Our panel explored the mobile money space from all perspectives: community-level implementation, programs, technology and international policy. We were delighted to be joined by Kay McGowen, Digital Finance Team Lead at USAID’s Global Development Lab; Leo Tobias, Technology Team Manager at the Grameen Foundation; Sean McDonald, CEO of FrontlineSMS and myself Kelly Church, Project Director of the Credit project at SIMLab with crafty moderation by Laura Walker McDonald, SIMLab’s CEO. The discussion is available for download as a podcast, and we expect the insights gained will be valuable for the international development and tech community for practitioners and beyond. Releasing the event as a podcast is an experiment in providing resources for the community that live on beyond the work itself - let us know what you think in the comments!
