In this video, the team of UNCDF recalls how the field visit helped MM4P partners learn about the benefits of a Human-Centered Product Development approach. The main objectives of the DFS Go Rural workshop (Kampala - Uganda, February 2015) were to expose participants to cutting edge initiatives in branchless banking, which would allow financial service providers to reach deeper into rural areas, to create and/or solidify the foundations of a community of practice amongst the programme’s stakeholders, and to share and learn.

By the close of the workshop, partners and practitioners have reflected on the local challenges faced when developing agent networks in rural areas and how to overcome those challenges based on the experience of their peers or exchanges with their peers.
