OUR FOCUS

Increasing
Digital Confidence

Mobile apps that involve money can feel inaccessible, overwhelming, or confusing to people new to digital.


How might we enable new internet users to interact with the digital economy confidently and independently?

Digitizing
Commerce

Last-mile commerce is mostly informal and cash-based, limiting earning and buying opportunities.


How might we HELP low-income PEOPLE tap into e-commerce networks as entry points for digital money?

Building Shared
Networks

Reaching the last mile can be costly for organizations.


How might we reduce the cost to serve rural communities by sharing resources across organizations?

THE COMPANY WE KEEP

We prototype, pilot, and invest in new ventures alongside a global network of businesses, NGOs, philanthropies, and governments.
