For this study on P2G (Person-to-government) payments, Rwanda was selected as a focus country given the potential reach and varied nature of two key initiatives: the IREMBO e-government platform and the Tap&Go smartcard for public bus transport. Digital payments for school fees and utility payments were also studied. Tap&Go is privately managed but offers P2G learnings for other countries where public transport is government-run.
The research sought to answer questions across three key areas:
1. How well did digital P2G payment solutions reach and address the needs of the financially excluded?
2. What were effective and sustainable business models between actors, and how were they set up?
3. How do current and planned solutions support and work with the evolving digital payments ecosystem in Rwanda?
