Summary

A core component of financial well-being is the ability to deal with unexpected events. Mobile money has influenced the welfare of households and is shaping the emergence of a new financial economy in Kenya.

As is often the case, the next reductions in transactions costs will also be harder to achieve, and will require new innovations and new investments.
