Learn how the World Food Programme (WFP) transitioned its program in Kenya from food aid delivery to e-payments, and how it found this to be 15 percent more cost efficient. The study looks at how development organizations or government programs can increase the efficiency and scale of transfers, while also forming the building blocks for financial inclusion. This is one in a series of case studies that was made possible by a grant from the Government of the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) to the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) in support of the work of the Better Than Cash Alliance.
