Plugging into Mobile Money Platforms: Early Experiences of NGOs in the Field

This focus note reviews early lessons for NGOs from the field. It explores three central questions: Does initial evidence support the notion that mobile money is a cheaper, faster, and more secure distribution platform? What aspects of program design most impact the costs and benefits of mobile money? And what have NGO early adopters learned from their experience in Haiti?
