The USAID-funded mSTAR Bangladesh project aims to increase operational efficiency and productivity across USAID Bangladesh’s agricultural and health portfolios through mobile and electronic payment adoption. Aligned with this objective, mSTAR Bangladesh facilitated two back-to-back district-level technical workshops at Barisal and Khulna to increase awareness and competence of relevant USAID implementing partners (IPs) belonging to the agriculture portfolio on the benefits of using mobile payments.  This report summarizes the activities of the two workshops held at Barisal and Khulna.
