More than 80 counties have launched such services through the use of mobile phones in recent years, the report said. A CGAPvideo explains how “digital data offers huge potential for financial inclusion” for the poor. Providers can cross-reference huge amounts of data, from utility payments to housing conditions, to tailor mobile money services to consumers who previously had little or no access to them.”
