Responding to COVID-19 in Kenya- A demand-side view from Kenya
MSC conducted research to understand how the low- and middle-income (LMI) segments cope with the COVID-19 pandemic in five countries. This report from Kenya offers a glimpse into their challenges, concerns, and new opportunities in these trying times.
What does it take to nudge low- and moderate income(LMI) population segments to adopt DFS
DFS can help increase the use of financial services, catalyze women’s economic empowerment and promote the development of the overall economy. However, the adoption of DFS amongst the LMI, especially women has been limited. Considering the increasing need for digital payments, especially in the wake of restricted mobility that COVID 19 imposes, MSC attempted to understand what it takes to nudge low- and moderate-income (LMI) population segments to adopt DFS.
