Scaling up Responsible Digital Payments in the Rwandan Tea Sector

Incorporating the United Nations Principles for Responsible Digital Payments to scale up digital payments in the tea sector,  the third-largest employer in Rwanda, can benefit tea farmers and rural communities, especially women, as well as tea value-chain actors and financial service providers (FSPs), while also contributing to sustainable national economic growth.

The proposed approach in this report for scaling digital payments in the Rwandan tea sector builds on the evolving payments ecosystem. It identifies six key areas of action, requiring a multi-stakeholder approach, to ensure farmers are at the center of a responsible and sustainable scale-up of digital payments.
