During his 10 months (Feb – Dec, 2017) Dr. Babcock created Grameen’s Digital Innovations in Agriculture Strategy and a new pipeline of projects. Grameen remains a core client of LHB Associates – a strategy and management consulting firm bringing mobile finance, crypto, blockchain and other business models to rural areas. In addition, LHB Trust continues to strategically invest in a small number of ventures one of which includes SmartMoney – a digital savings and payments service provider in Uganda and Tanzania.

LHB Associates currently has teams on the ground in Nigeria and Ghana doing cash usage behavior research (CUBeR) with cassava farmers

They are doing focus group discussions and surveys.  Dr. Babcock is doing key informant interviews with cassava agribusinesses, mobile financial service providers, financial institutions and other stakeholders.  Our client would like the results of the CUBeR to inform how cassava digital payments alliances might be created.
