Mobile Financial Services for Everyone, the RGF-funded project, will adapt ITC's flagship platform, TransFlow to make remittances safe, accessible and affordable particularly to the rural poor and to introduce enhanced automated financial service delivery to them using Safe-Send technology. This technology relies on blockchain to eliminate mistakes associated with delivery of funds.

The grant support is USD228,180 while ITC is providing matching funds of USD 267,845 towards the implementation of the project.
The project seeks to contribute towards meeting the following RGF objectives:
1.Greater use of formal sector remittances
