There is clearly a need for additional banking services in Mozambique. The market, which is dominated by four major banks, addresses the needs of less than 5% of the 21 million people in Mozambique.

CHALLENGE: Identify optimal investments to accelerate mobile banking
An international development organization, the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation (IFC) needed to identify opportunities that would lead to both a dramatic increase in the banked population in Mozambique and a successful investment strategy. IFC needed to evaluate m-banking, switching, and other options for delivering financial services to unserved and underserved financial markets.
