Abstract:     
This note shows the headline results of a census of cash outlets conducted in Tanzania by the Financial Sector Deepening Trust of Tanzania (FSDT). The availability of places where one can exchange cash for transferable or storable electronic value is an essential component of financial access. The note explores how significant is the spread of mobile money agents, and how deeply it has penetrated rural areas with no banking infrastructure.
