Digital Finance for Development: A Handbook for USAID Staff
This handbook is designed to enable USAID personnel to maximize the Agency’s use of and contribution to the growth of digital financial services in emerging markets around the world. As an Agency, USAID brings significant comparative advantages to the collective effort required to build out financial services and market infrastructure that serve the poor and create pathways out of poverty.
This handbook will enable readers to understand how to identify, assess, and act upon opportunities to use inclusive digital financial services (like mobile money) in USAID programs. The Handbook is designed for use across the Agency, though content is often framed with a Mission perspective.
