State Department Sets Out to Figure Out Mobile Money – Tech President

Elana Berkowitz is part of the Innovation Office working under Secretary Clinton, newly assigned to State after a stint helping to write the National Broadband Plan at the FCC. She describes the promise of mobile banking as part of a broader State effort at increasing financial inclusion around the globe. “For us, part of the potentially transformative impact of mobile money is that we have so many people around the world who don’t have formal bank accounts, or formal financial identities,” she says, “and yet we’re seeing such an explosion in mobile in the world, to the point where there are 1.7 billion people who don’t have access to financial services, but do have access to a mobile phone.”

Mobile finance is one aspect of the State Department’s high-tech push where other in-depth is being done around the world, inside and outside government. The Gates Foundation and USAID recently announced a $10 million new fund to figure out how mobile banking might help in the rebuilding of post-earthquake Haiti. And on Tuesday, the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor, or CGAP, put out a report assessing ” Microfinance and Mobile Banking: The Story So Far.”
