[Experiment Result]: Currency Test Microfinance Amisen April 2019

 

Lean Canvas Phase: Solution

 

Assumption: That rural community members whom don’t have access to a bank are willing to pay for education about savings and banking.

 

Results:

 

Vengara:

Have not been able to establish engagements in Vengara due to external circumstances
   

Jumtha:

Over the course of 2 days we engaged 20 residents of Jumtha testing our MVP. 5 residents responded to a village community survey positively and signed MOUs to place down the initial MVP deposit amount of $1. 3 other residents of Jumtha who we encountered through other channels purchased our MVP 

Of those who bought our solution and displayed the most interest were those employed as Tuk Tuk drivers. In particular, the prospect of starting their own business - within the transport industry - had broad appeal amongst this demographic.

The next notable sub-demographic were petty entrepreneurs such as farmers. Of those engaged in Jumtha, 90% were farmers. The appeal to farmers were similar to those of the Tuk-Tuk drivers - a desire to expand their own business interests and financial security

Finally, the sub-demographic of small young families - which intersects considerably with the farmers and Tuk-Tuk drivers, were drawn most to the prospect of financial security and future planning. 50% of total engaged were small families with precarious incomes sources similar to the Tuk-Tuk drivers or Farmers

 

 

Validated learning

Rural communities have both the desire and interest to improve their financial security through a solid savings plan. However they lack the financial literacy to execute such a plan nor do they have access to credible banking solutions. The above results demonstrate that our solution which equips our customers with actionable financial savings plans resonates with our proposed customer segment

 

Next Move

Establish a cost and time effective channel in order to distribute our solution to rural community members without access to proper financial services

Renew efforts to engage with villagers in Vengara to distribute the MVP
