The project has three specific objectives. First, we will estimate the differential economic impact of hiring male and female mobile banking agents on workers and on business development. Second, the project allows studying the effect of experiencing female employment on attitudes towards female labor force participation. Finally, we will test for gender-specific constraints to being a mobile money customer, account usage and the use of loans.
