Highlights

- The mobile savings market is driven by two distinct commercial models: the development of dedicated saving accounts, separated from the mobile wallet, and the distribution of interest based on money stored in the mobile wallet. In this second model, MNOs do not need to create specific partnerships with banks, and have full control of the operation.

- The mobile credit market also has two commercial models: some MNOs have created strong partnerships with financial institutions to offer credit facilities via their mobile money systems, while others provide extra airtime when customers are running out of credit.

- The mobile insurance market offers four commercial models, ranging from the traditional pay for premium and freemium models to the emergence of new commercial schemes. Some MNOs are now offering insurance coverage in return for a certain amount of monthly airtime top-up.
