Digital payments are the only way to prevent up to 90% of scams that are occurring through microfinance in the form of cash collection that either leads to robbery or other crimes.

Digital payments can be performed swiftly and efficiently, which saves overall expenses. Digital payments improve tracking and accountability, reducing the likelihood of fraud and theft”. The fact that digital payments reduce the cost of delivering financial services to the poor and improve the simplicity and safety of utilizing savings, payment, and insurance products has led to their emergence as a key tool for increasing financial inclusion.
