The case of Mobile Money innovation in Uganda
Undeniably, a lot has been said as well as written about mobile money. However, it seems there is still some unfinished business related to the topic of mobile money. This unfinished business explains why there is still an ongoing debate about the effect of mobile money on an economy, in this case the economy of Uganda. I found this debate a very intriguing one and I got tempted to contribute to it, particularly from the perspective of inclusiveness and poverty reduction. I would like to rebuff the line of thinking that mobile money has adverse effects on the economy and instead reiterate the counter argument that mobile money has already been playing significant roles, which are quite relevant in the quest for economic transformation and mass poverty reduction.
