Mobile Money: Emerging Markets - Where are the Opportunities for Mobile Money?

A session at Mobile World Congress 2012

  • Maarten Boute

Thursday 1st March, 2012

2:30pm to 4:00pm (WET)

Several emerging markets represent strong growth opportunities for mobile money due to the high numbers of unbanked and under-banked customers. Money transfers, bill payments, cash withdrawals and forms of micro financing, often through simple but secure SMS messaging, are just some examples of mobile money services which are proving valuable to consumers in emerging markets, where mobile phone usage is high but where access to traditional banking services is limited.

This session will explore where opportunities exist for mobile money services in emerging markets. It will discuss the role of mobile network operators, financial institutions and payment providers and the challenges in bringing mobile money services to emerging markets.
