A few figures 2.5 billion mobile users worldwide The majority (59%) lives in developing countries Grew by 500 million in the past 12 months 25% coming from China and India

2.5 billion mobile users worldwide

The majority (59%) lives in developing countries

Grew by 500 million in the past 12 months

25% coming from China and India

Historical change! This is the first time in history that a telecom technology has more users in developing countries than in the developed world So there is a clear advantage in learning from other developing markets (even if they do not have 3G…)

Question Nelson Mandela 1993 Nobel Peace Prize Can any of this whiz-bang technology be used for alleviating poverty ?

Case 1: the fish (India) (1) Fish (2) Go to the nearest market (3) Sell the fish Business process : Problem : No clue about the market (demand & offer) What to fish? Where to fish? Where to sell?

Problems Result 2 : Unpredictable income Result 1 : Waste of fish (5 to 8%)

Solution Solution : Fishermen network Call each other to determine market demand, offer and best price

Results Result 1 : Fisherman profit growth: 8% Result 2 : Consumer price decline: 4% Source: Harvard Kennedy School - 1997 Result 3 : Waste decline: from 8% to 0+%

Some words of wisdom Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime. Our job is not to give people fish, it's not to teach them how to fish, it's to build new and better fishing industries . Bill Drayton Ashoka founder

Effect of mobile phones Mobile phones can support more efficient markets and encourage economic activity +10% mobile penetration rate = +0.5% GDP growth Source: Leonard Waverman, London Business School - 2005

Case 2: the jackfruit (Bangladesh) Problem : Less developed areas have less information on market prices of goods Consequence : They often are (and feel) abused

Solution: CellBazaar Mobile classified ads Puts buyers & sellers in contact (‘mobile Craigslist’ for all kinds of goods: commodities, bicycles, etc and jobs) Source: www.cellbazaar.com

Business Model Service is free (regular call charges) Revenues from calls are shared with operator Grameen Telecom

Service is free (regular call charges)

Revenues from calls are shared with operator Grameen Telecom

Some words of wisdom The service is not just mobile classified ads but a social development service . Kamal Quadir CellBazaar creator It cuts out the middlemen for buyers and sellers, which means more profits and savings for them.

Case 3: the small business (Bangladesh) We saw : Mobile can be a source of productivity Problem : Still some people can’t afford a handset Opportunity : Is there a way to turn mobile phones into a business for its owner?

Some words of wisdom For a rural entrepreneur, a cell phone could be a cow Iqbal Quadir Co-founder of Grameen Phone

Grameen Phone’s ‘Phone Ladies’ “ Phone Ladies” let non-owners use their phone for a small fee

Creating new revenue sources Over 200,000 phone ladies in Bangladesh Average income of a Phone Lady = $1000/year Average income in Bangladesh = US$300/year Source: Canadian International Development Agency

Case 4: Banking without bank (Philippines) Problem : Accessibility of capital Micro-entrepreneurs have skills but lack access to capital to start their business No rural banking infrastructure

Case 4: Banking without bank (Philippines) Retailers partners G-cash (Telco: Globe) Shop, Bank, micro-credit, Retailers, etc $$$ Airtime $ P

Results Result 1 : 1.3 million G-cash registered users US$100M transaction per day Result 2 : 700,000 ‘airtime loading’ retailers (Larger than Coca-Cola’s network) Other initiatives in: Mexico, South Africa, Kenya, Etc. Source: G-cash – March 2006
