Adopting mobile money does not only bring benefits to development organizations, but it can also bring about dramatic change in the personal and professional lives of staff and beneficiaries. This MM Experience tells the story of Razzak, a Community Agriculture Volunteer (CAV) in Sirajgani district with CARE Bangladesh. 

Razzak's story illustrates how development organizations' use of mobile financial services can serve as an effective channel for increasing the financial inclusion of rural Bangladeshis. 

This is the seventh in a series created by mSTAR/Bangladesh to show the tangible benefits of mobile money on people's lives.
