Applying Mobile Technology to Improve Business Models in Tanzania and Zambia

Applying Mobile Technology to Improve Business Models in Tanzania and Zambia
This FIELD Brief illustrates the lessons learned through the application of technology to improve business models in two MEDA supported initiatives: mobile vouchers for agriculture in Zambia, and mobile vouchers for bed-net distribution in Tanzania. Both efforts demonstrated how supporting private sector partners to leverage mobile technology can create sustainable business models and products that reach the poor.

This "FIELD Brief" is the twentieth in a series produced by the FIELD-Support LWA Program. This brief discusses how mobile technology can used to improve business processes and supply chain management to reach more people and increase development outcomes. This FIELD Brief was written by Chrissy Martin and Sashi Selvendran from Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA).
