Wireless has played a major role to rebuild Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010. As part of our March blog theme highlighting international wireless use, today’s video shows the mobile banking system in Haiti established by Trilogy International Partners and Mercy Corps.

This clip shows how this system is helping to educate Haitians to increase savings and provide security.
