This Rapid Assessment Framework is designed to guide users through an initial assessment of new markets to provide insights into where Pay-As-You-Go Solar may be a driver of financial inclusion. The framework outlines five key questions related to existing electrification, mobile money practices, and the local business environment. In addition, the framework points to several data sources to inform the each part of the assessment. While not intended to produce full market research, the framework aims to facilitate analyses of new markets in ways that highlight the opportunity to advance both off-grid electrification and financial inclusion.
