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:
I would be very grateful for your response,
