The MAP Global Insights series attempts to consolidate and synthesise the learnings from MAP across the MAP pilot countries. The first of the MAP Global Insights products comprises five thematic cross- country notes, based on the initial round of findings from the country diagnostic studies, which have been conducted in Thailand, Myanmar, Swaziland, Mozambique, Lesotho and Malawi.

NOTE 3 looks at the role of local financial services compared to remote financial services, and the implications for providers, policymakers and donors in terms of learning from, replicating or leveraging the value offered by these existing services.
