  • Family Networks of Mobile Money in Kenya

    • Authors: Sibel B. Kusimba, Yang Yang, Nitesh V. Chawla
      Abstract: This research examines the interplay between social networks and mobile money remittances in Western Kenya. Research was conducted in Kenya’s Bungoma and Trans-Nzoia counties in 2012, 2013, and 2014, involving 12 family networks of between 8—70 people. Using small and frequent digital money transfers, relatives provide for household and emergency needs, contribute to ceremonies, and help pay school fees and medical bills. We find that digital money transfers follow and reinforce preexisting forms of emotional support and social relationships. In these families, the transfers strengthen maternal kinship ties as well relationships among siblings and cousins. Money networks are reciprocal, such that senders are also receivers, and individuals have many connections through which to access resources. Some individuals are “central” in networks, having more connections; others broker flows of e-value from one group of relatives to another. Mobile money strengthens social bonds but can also disrupt social relationships as when hiding digital value and remittances from in-laws or spouses.

  • A Pilot Study Using Educational Animations as a Way to Improve
           Farmers’ Agricultural Practices and Health Around Adama, Ethiopia

    • Authors: Julia Bello-Bravo, Gemechu W. Olana, Barry Robert Pittendrigh
      Abstract: This study focuses on the potential of animated videos in educational programs with low-literate farmers around Adama, Ethiopia. Scientific Animations Without Borders (SAWBO), a University of Illinois initiative, focuses on the creation of animations to explain complicated concepts in a simple and visual way that can be used to improve farmers’ livelihoods in rural areas worldwide. Adama Science and Technology University (ASTU) has been collaborating with SAWBO in promoting, disseminating, and evaluating the deployment outcomes of educational animated videos (animations). In this pilot study, we investigated participants’ attitudes toward such animations and surveyed them regarding the social settings and pathways through which they might obtain such animations, thereby determining potential approaches for a larger-scale release. We observed that animations were well received by the participants, who, when surveyed, liked the clarity of the audio and the message in their local languages as well as the animation presentation and duration. Additionally, respondents suggested potential deployment approaches using organizations familiar to them. This holds out the possibility of using informal social groups or traditional community-based organizations like iddirs and equbs as dissemination pathways. These combined data suggest that individuals in this region are open to the use of animation as an educational tool and as a pathway for their social improvement and economic advancement. We also present, based on our findings, a model for a larger-scale deployment pathway.

  • How Transformational Mobile Banking Optimizes Household Expenditures: A
           Case Study from Rural Communities in Mexico

    • Authors: Cesar Renteria
      Abstract: This article presents the results of a quasiexperimental impact evaluation of a mobile banking pilot project led by the Mexican government in a context that portrays the financial inclusion challenges in Mexico and Latin America: highly dispersed populations in rural communities that lack access to a financial system and telecommunication services. The research questions that drive this study are: Do mobile banking and mobile telephony have an impact on households’ expenditures? Specifically, what categories of expenditure are affected? The propensity score matching methodology was used to assess the impact on households’ expenditures by category (e.g., education, transport, energy, communications, etc.). Results show that mobile banking can reduce spending on communications and public transport, and the main benefits in terms of spending come from the reduction of people’s local commuting expenses. Likewise, evidence indicates that a major share of spending reduction is transformed into savings in bank accounts. Finally, the case study presents relevant lessons for mobile banking policy alternatives to promote financial and digital inclusion in rural communities.

  • Investigating the Role of Innovation Attributes in the Adoption,
           Rejection, and Discontinued Use of Open Source Software for Development

    • Authors: Melissa Tully
      Abstract: Drawing on technology adoption research, particularly diffusion of innovations, this article analyzes organizational adoption decisions of a new ICT by organizations in Nairobi, Kenya. Through a multi-case study and interviews with potential adopters, this research assesses the influence of perceived innovation attributes on adoption decisions regarding the Ushahidi Platform, a tool designed for collecting, aggregating, and mapping information. Findings suggest that perceptions of trialability and observability, two attributes that have been found to be less predictive in past research, were influential in the decision process. Additionally, perceived flexibility is added to the list of attributes that should be considered, particularly for analyzing the adoption of free and open source technology.
