Worldwide, mobile phone subscriptions have reached 5.9 billion, with 79 percent penetration in developing countries. Mobile phones are no longer used only to stay connected. Mobile phones allow low-income people to gain access to health information, agricultural data, banking services, employment and educational opportunities.
Register today to hear sector leaders speak about their experiences in tailoring mobile technologies to the specific needs of low-income people in developing countries.
The GSMA’s Mobile Money for the Unbanked Programme, an initiative of one of the world’s leading industry associations providing mobile technology at the Base of the Pyramid (BoP), will discuss innovative products and partnerships aimed at addressing financial inclusion at the BoP using mobile technology. Ericsson, one of the leading telecommunications companies, and MicroEnsure, an insurance intermediary serving the BoP, will present their experiences in developing innovative business models using mobile technology.
