Mr. Mwebaze reportedly promised people that if they put money in savings accounts, they would be able to take out loans that were double the deposited amount with no interest during the following month.

Traditional insurance providers face difficulties when serving low-income and unbanked customers with traditional insurance products in areas like transaction size, client education, and outreach, among others. However, mobile technologies have disrupted the way insurance is delivered and in the last two years a new array of mobile microinsurance services have popped up. Earlier…

    My bottom-line framing of this entire issue is related to a basic question: why we do this kind of social science research at all?  In my mind, we do it for one reason: in combating societal problems such as poverty, we want to do more of what works well, and less of what doesn’t work, or works less well.  Period.  If research contributes to that, I will call it successful and effective.  If not does not, I will call it a failure – no matter how elegant the research design or how smart the investigators.  This is my take on the design principle of “relevance” which we have been…

From Los Angeles to Kampala, the mobile phone has become ubiquitous, bridging class divides, gender differences, generational gaps and territorial boundaries. And in sub Saharan Africa, it has gone further than any piece of modern technology in becoming something rural people use daily. It’s no wonder that the mobile phone is generally viewed as one of the keys to reaching people who previously weren’t accessible because of various infrastructural…

The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey of economists is that 230,000 workers were added in August; 2. Almost all of the individual forecasters will be wrong. (Actually, every single forecaster was wrong, since the number came in at 142,000, way below the lowest estimate); 3. Many investors (and other finance and business professionals) hang on these forecasts as if they were Morpheus receiving word from the Oracle that “Neo is the One.” Longtime readers of…

Not so long ago, people rarely questioned the value of a college degree. A bachelor’s degree was seen as a surefire ticket to a career-oriented, good-paying job. Today, however, many people are uncertain whether going to college is such a wise decision. It’s easy to see why. Tuition costs have been rising considerably faster than inflation, student debt is…

    Buriokhop is a village in West Sikkim. Nestled in mountains of the region, a small English academy, Sikkim Himalayan Academy, is the only source of education for many children living in the mountainous hinterlands of Western Sikkim, untouched by technology, the imposition of monoculture and urban decadency. The people in these regions thrive in the idyllic environment, in spite of poor healthcare facilities. The village is an anachronism for someone raised in a technologically advanced urban centre. Buriokhop, however, can hardly provide for all the children who live in the backwoods of…

    “It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.” ― Charles Darwin The world’s cities are facing two clear trends. First, we are living in an increasingly urbanized world, with the percentage of people living in cities projected to increase from approximately 50% today to an estimated 75% by 2050.Second, while those cities are quickly growing, the natural and man-made threats that they face are becoming more frequent and intense.

    How many times have you wanted to volunteer to support a cause, but have not been able to take time out to do so? According to Doing Good Fellows (DGF), there are almost 72% of urban youth willing to help, support, mentor and volunteer but only 12% manage to accomplish it. The intent is there but people are unaware about the best way to go about it. Doing Good Fellows bridges the gap by asking interested individuals (Fellows) to share their expertise and their networks. This year, the DGF team launched a new reinvented version of DGF platform based on a lot of feedback from Fellows and NGOs.

    12 Aug 2014 | 12:55 am
    By Ravi Saraogi, IFMR Investments Introduction Simon Kuznets’ seminal 1955 study on income inequality is famous for the inverted ‘U’ hypothesis1 which posits that as an economy develops, inequality first increases and then decreases if a certain level of income is achieved. In his study, Kuznets writes that the study of income distribution “has been plagued by looseness in definitions, unusual scarcity of data, and pressures of strongly held opinions.” Half a century later, it would seem these words still hold true given the fractious debate Thomas Piketty’s work has reignited.
