USAID promotes increased access to and usage of mobile financial services in order to deepen financial inclusion, accelerate broad-based economic growth, and instill transparency into funding flows. These tipsheets are intended to assist USAID implementing partners in Bangladesh to more effectively make use of mobile financial services.

Effectively incorporating mobile financial services in projects and programs requires a programmatic approach. This document is a checklist prepared based on the experiences incorporating MFS into multiple projects in Bangladesh. USAID’s mSTAR project can also provide support with any of these steps via on-demand technical assistance.
