Agent Networks at the Last Mile: Implications for Financial Regulators

As part of CGAP's Cash-In/Cash-Out (CICO) for Rural Agent Networks project, CGAP and its partners made a comprehensive compilation of recent global knowledge about how CICO agent networks operate in different markets and the financial service provider (FSP) practices, policies and regulations that have enabled their development.

This reading deck for regulators does three things:

  1. It shows how expanding rural Cash-in/Cash-out (CICO) agent networks is key to ensuring more inclusive digital financial systems.
  2. It illustrates industry innovations that are making rural CICO more viable.
  3. It presents a set of regulatory considerations that can enable such innovations within a stable financial system.
