The Mobile Money Prevalence Index (MMPI): A Country-Level Indicator for Assessing the Adoption, Activity and Accessibility of Mobile Money

Since the launch of mobile money in the 2000s, the GSMA has received many hundreds of requests for country-level insights into the industry. These requests have come from multilateral institutions, national and regional central banks, academia, management consultants, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) enterprises, and from mobile money providers themselves, as well as, from other financial service providers.

In order to meet this demand while also protecting the data submitted by the industry, the GSMA has developed the Mobile Money Prevalence Index (MMPI). Presented in this paper, the index considers mobile money adoption, activity and accessibility at country level in order to facilitate comparisons between markets. The purpose of the index is to support decision making for public and private stakeholders alike.
