Summary

Dr Tavneet Suri is a Kenyan development economist and associate professor of applied economics at the Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management. Dr Suri delivered the inaugural FSD Kenya annual public lecture, “The mobile money revolution in Kenya: Can the promise be fulfilled?”, based on her research into M-Pesa and other financial instruments in Kenya. With FSD’s support, she and her collaborator Dr William Jack, recently completed the fifth round of a longitudinal study into M-Pesa usage and impact.

The chief guest of the event, Dr Patrick Njoroge, Governor of the Central Bank of Kenya, offered the audience his perspectives on both Dr Suri’s research findings and the wider issue of financial inclusion in Kenya following the lecture.
