The mSTAR team received a request from the Agro-Inputs Project (AIP) on April 29, 2015, to investigate the scope of integrating mobile money in their project. The mSTAR team conducted a scoping study covering AIP Khulna field office, members of the Agro-Input Retailers’ Network (AIRN) and farmers in order to:


i) Understand the financial behavior of wholesalers, retailers, and farmers during peak and off-peak season.
ii) Map the transaction flow between wholesalers, retailers, and farmers during peak and off-peak season.
