Mobile banking is perhaps the most successful case demonstrating how technology can improve access to financial services.

This phenomenon started in Kenya where M-PESA became a digital system to settle payments via mobile phone, unlocking banking access to millions of consumers. The payment platform has turned into a gateway for further financial services, enabling services to be built around a transaction history and a credit profile developed from alternative data.

AIR is partnering with the United Nations, Central Banks and NGOs in emerging markets to help identify how technology can improve and rapidly accelerate financial access and financial inclusion.
