A History Lesson for Advancing Interoperability in Mobile Money

CGAP 140pxOn the CGAP Blog Kabir Kumar writes:

CGAP commissioned Carol Benson and Scott Loftesness of Glenbrook Partners to glean lessons from more developed payments markets, like the United States and Japan, that could be relevant for interoperability questions in global branchless banking markets.
In the report, Interoperability in Electronic Payments, Benson and Loftesness looked at select and noteworthy historical examples to see if they proved or disproved the hypotheses. They paint a picture of how conditions developed over time based in part on their own first hand experiences, which makes the report full of interesting insights.
