With the tagline “Mobile Money Nata Karon!” (We are into mobile money now!), CDO residents may now access mobile money payment services for property tax, business permits, traffic citations, and other fees through USAID’s Scaling Innovations in Mobile Money (SIMM) Project.

CDO is one of the first three Cities Development Initiative (CDI) cities, where USAID has focused its multi-sectoral support for economic development.
