USAID has an enduring commitment to support women on their journey to digital financial literacy and inclusion.

In collaboration with Strategic Impact Advisors (SIA), we’ve produced a creative series of audio lessons to help women learn how to use digital financial services to better manage their financial lives.

New episodes were just released to supplement the 10 lessons launched in November 2020. The series — called “Hey Sister! Show Me the Mobile Money!” — follows the storylines of four characters as they navigate the terrain of DFS and make everyday transactions common for mobile money users.

Lessons cover a range of topics — everything from how to keep your personal information safe, how to get a loan and insurance using your phone, and how to use digital tools to advance your business.

The best part? This content is open source and can be used, adapted and cross posted by any organization or partner interested in building digital financial literacy.
