Evaluation of Mobile Money Uptake – FSDMoç

The Financial Sector Deepening, Moçambique (FSDMoç) is a six-year programme funded by the UK International Development Agency (DFID) and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) whose mission is to identify and partner with key market stakeholders, offering targeted investments and insights to promote the financial sector to improve financial inclusion. FSDMoç partnered with M-Pesa Mozambique (2016 to 2018) to increase the uptake of the mobile money in the country and to reinforce M-Pesa’s on-going Pedro strategy to increase the number of current M-Pesa customers (users) and to accelerate uptake by 1 million more users via the use of promoters. FSDMoç commissioned an end- term evaluation to gauge the results achieved during the two-year partnership to:

  •   Improve understanding on the use of mobile money.

  •   Provide conclusions on opportunities and challenges in the mobile market system of Mozambique.

  •   Provide details on the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of M-Pesa interventions in Mozambique.
