Digitizing Bulk Payments in Agriculture
The growth of bulk payments in agriculture has sparked debates over what type of payment is cheaper for farmers and other actors in agricultural value chains: cash or mobile money?
To better understand the value proposition of digital bulk payments, CGAP and UNCDF engaged the consulting firm PHB Development to undertake a first-of-its-kind research project in Uganda. PHB Development conducted a detailed value proposition mapping exercise, based on the principles of activity-based costing, to compare the cost of cash versus the cost of mobile money for the most important stakeholders in Uganda's coffee value chain.
In this webinar, we shared the results of this work along with insights for organizations that are looking to transition from cash to mobile money within the agricultural sector.
