Abstract

The Financial Sector Deepening Trust of Tanzania (FSDT) has conducted two censuses of cash outlets in Tanzania, in 2012 and again in 2014. The availability of places where one can exchange cash for transferable or storable electronic value is an essential component of financial access, and the spread of mobile money in recent years has transformed the ecology of cash in Tanzania. This document contains two briefing notes on the survey results, corresponding to the two censuses that have been conducted to-date.

Keywords: mobile money, access to finance, cash
