Hello All,

I work for The Department for International Development (DFID) and I am also  a postgraduate student at Birkbeck, University of London, where I am completing a MSc. in International Business and Development.  I am currently writing my dissertation on the socio-economic impact of mobile phones on smallholder farmers.
I am seeking to discover how mobile technology such as SMS, helplines, information services and the Internet have made a difference in the following areas: 
- Increasing access to financial services (mobile banking)
- Supplying agricultural information
- Increasing data visibility for supply chain efficiency
- Improving access to markets
To this end I have completed the following survey which I would like to invite you to complete by 19 Sept and share as widely as possible:
-Survey for providers of mobile services in agriculture:
-Survey for users of mobile services in Agriculture in developing countries:


I would be very grateful for your response,
Best regards

Thanks Sharon, I will.  BTW, I'm currently doing research on the global mobile banking sector.  You can see an outline of my research agenda here:

Hi Jane,

Thanks so much for your offer to help! The initial beta will be tested in Kenya only, but it would be great to have your input when we release outside of Kenya. To stay up to date with news on our upcoming release you can join our newsletter via our website:

I went to your FrontlineSMS Credit website and see that you will soon have a beta version out.  I'll be happy to help you test that software once you have it ready for beta testing.  I'm working on the Android platform.

Hi Jane,

This looks like it could be a really valuable initiative, which I hadn't seen before; thanks so much for sharing the link here on the FrontlineSMS community! Could also be very much of interest to members of the Gender group here on the forum, too, so feel free to post in the Gender group too if you'd like to.

Thanks again for sharing.
