Digital Financial Services for rural populations in Benin

In Benin, only 16% of the adult population has a mobile money account in rural areas. In February 2018, UNCDF, in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation, supported CashZone, a Beninese service aggregator to deploy agents in rural areas of northern Benin.

Six months later, a network began to take shape in targeted areas where people had to travel long distances to access digital financial services. Download the factsheet to know more about the project.
