Using Haiti as a Mobile Money model in Afghanistan
Our friends at USAID sent us this story about a Haitian tech firm that built an Android app to speed up mobile payments at merchants. Transversal is a Haitian IT company, and they are working with the largest wireless provider, Digicel, to provide an innovative way for Haitians to process transactions through an Android application.
With more than 15 billion dollars spent on development programs in Afghanistan since 2002, USAID provides the largest bilateral civilian assistance program to Afghanistan. Thei work continues to be a vital support to Afghanistan in its efforts to ensure economic growth led by the private sector, establish a democratic and capable state governed by the rule of law, and provide basic services for its people.
