Realizing Feed the Future’s Commitment to Use Digital Tools to Grow Agriculture and Financial Inclusion in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is making important strides in the use of digital technology to improve farmer livelihoods and meet ambitious national goals for financial inclusion by 2020. Commercial product offerings are driving this advancement specifically for digital financial services (DFS). With the broader availability and growing use of DFS-enabled banking products, the Government of Ethiopia (GOE), Feed the Future, through USAID, and its development partners now can integrate digital technology to facilitate food security, transformative agriculture-led growth, resilience and women’s economic empowerment priorities under the U.S. Government Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS).
