The Economics Association of Malawi (ECAMA) with financial support from the Africa Economic Research Consortium (AERC) organized a research dissemination workshop on 11th December 2018 at Capital Hotel in Lilongwe. This seminar was organized to disseminate the findings of research work undertaken by the association’s members; Ms. Mirriam Matita and Ms. Takondwa Chauma on financial literacy and mobile services in Malawi.
The findings of the study revealed that the likelihood of using mobile financial services increases with increasing levels of financial literacy, type of employment and urban residence. Furthermore, men are more likely to transact on mobile phones than females and that although income levels matter in the use of mobile financial transactions, the magnitude of effect is negligible.
