A very small selection of hundreds of interviews with farmers, fishermen, traders, and others have been written up as profiles. Read these to get a richer sense of how ‘the poor’ and the ‘non-affluent’ manage, survive, and thrive with mobile phones in hand.

For a more in-depth treatment of these topics, visit the publications page. In particular see our working paper titled ‘The Myth of Market Price Information.’
