Today USAID launched the "Guide to the use of digital financial services in agriculture" 

The goal of the Guide is to identify specific challenges in value chains that can be addressed by improved payments or financial services, and then to identify corresponding digital finance services (DFS) solutions to these specific challenges, with the aim of improving the ability of value chains to increase farmer incomes. In doing so, it is possible to increase farmer household access to a transaction account that builds household resiliency and offers access to payments and financial services long after an aid project or intervention is complete. Ultimately, this will move us closer to Feed the Future’s joint high-level objectives of inclusive agricultural sector growth and improved nutritional status.
