Joining the Alliance

While physical cash payments are more effective than distributing in-kind goods, there is a growing body of evidence that digitizing payments can create lasting benefits for people, communities and economies such as: cost savings, transparency, security, financial inclusion, and access to new markets.

Achieving the full benefits at each stage of the transition process requires the leadership, resources and technical expertise that the Better Than Cash Alliance offers its members. The Better Than Cash Alliance is dedicated to supporting governments, private sector leaders, multilateral and bilateral donors, U.N. agencies, and non-governmental organizations that are committed to a transformational shift from cash to electronic payments.

David uses this service to transport money to his family and friends, who receive a text and the money is instantly there, which is an improvement from having to send money via CamTransfer where you have to call the person to come pick it up.
