Building a ‘Last Mile’ Shared Agent Network to Enhance Financial Capability

Grameen Foundation seeks to work with local partner institutions, including Microventures Mtd. (“Hapinoy1”), to develop a shared, last mile agent network in the Philippines. The grant will allow Grameen Foundation to develop a simple and cost-effective way to 1) assess agent performance and behavior, 2) evaluate the incentive system and profitability of the agent network, and 3) identify ways to improve network agent management and system interfaces. Equipped with a mobile-enabled interoperable payments platform, agent training and management model, and scalable business plan, Hapinoy’s sari2-sari store franchises will transform into a shared agent network that extends financial inclusion to the Philippines’ rural poor.

Support Dates: March, 2015 – ongoing
