ELAN Mobile Money Workshop Report

2016 — By Lily Frey

The Electronic Cash Transfer Learning Action Network (ELAN) hosted two mobile money workshops in January 2016 in Dakar (Senegal) and in Gisenyi (Rwanda). The workshops were attended by 52 individuals from seven countries across West Africa and the Great Lakes region representing 16 humanitarian agencies (HAs) and 11 private sector service providers (SPs). The events were guided by two objectives:

  • Improve understanding of minimum requirements for successful deployments of mobile money in humanitarian programs, and
  • Build relationships between key actors in the two sectors and identify necessary next steps to advance shared objectives.

This report summarizes the main outcomes of the two workshops and outlines the next steps for the ELAN.
