Abstract:

In countries where digital payment systems have taken hold in poor and rural communities, specifically in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Financial Services for Poor (FSP) team works with banks, insurance companies, and other providers to increase the range of financial services that people can access in digital form. Many of these services are designed to meet the specific household management needs of low-income people, particularly smallholder farmers and women. FSP requires project management services and local presence to manage several initiatives that it has in Tanzania.

Approach:
WS Technology works with FSP team to analyze what FSP needs to achieve and apply its knowledge of Tanzanian market and local culture to manage FSP initiatives.
Solution:
WS Technology provides advisory and project management services to FSP team. It also provides strategic support to FSP’s grantees so that they can deliver financial services to the poor in alignment with Tanzania’s National Financial Inclusion Framework
