With the financial support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and other regional stakeholders, MicroSave is conducting a four-year research project in eleven focus countries as part of the Agent Network Accelerator (ANA) Project.

The Helix Institute of Digital Finance, which manages the ANA project, provides financial sector stakeholders with capacity building trainings to develop sustainable digital finance programmes and operations, through market analytics, operational training and advisory services. This report focuses on the findings from the second wave of ANA research conducted in Nigeria in 2016. The first wave of the study was previously completed in 2014.
