Digital Identity is a commonly accepted prerequisite for financial inclusion. However when it comes to rural population in developing markets, limited national ID systems and stringent KYC requirements prevent rural from accessing electronic payments services. This in turn prevents creation of digital transaction and financial history needed for the evolution of DFS to insurance, savings, credit and other services. This session will explore promising technology and the role of mobile in creating digital and economic identity for rural, as well as maps out existing challenges in scaling such technologies.
