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. With the help of a $10 million incentive fund launched by The Gates Foundation and administered by USAID, mobile banking in Haiti is changing lives and providing connectivity across the country, even though there are only two bank branches. This clip shows how this system is helping to educate Haitians to increase savings and provide security.
