Rather than directly aiming to reduce poverty, the program in Nepal is working to facilitate increased access to schooling for children in an attempt to affect many poverty-related outcomes. Nepal's challenging geography has resulted in an inefficient delivery system for cash-transfers, which has resulted in leakage and lost man-hours in administration offices. Nepal is seeking to develop its electronic payment system, which will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the cash transfers. Moreover the introduction of mobile networks provides the unprecedented opportunity to deepen financial inclusion in the Himalayan country.
