Les Transferts d’Argent par Téléphonie Mobile et par IMF pour les Réfugiés Urbains à Niamey (Niger)

Cette étude a comparé l'efficacité des transferts d’argent par téléphonie mobile et les transferts de cash par l’Institution de Micro-Finance aux réfugiés urbains à Niamey.

WFP is concerned that a lack of funds could compromise efforts to support households in the Sahel, where many are still recovering from the crisis in 2012.
