Reflecting on its diverse shared value experiences in Haiti, Central America, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, Mercy Corps incorporated an institutional strategy to pursue two promising opportunities: (1) financial services for the poor (often mobile-enabled), such as savings, insurance and loans; (2) “last-mile” sales and distribution of goods with a social benefit (e.g., cook stoves and solar products) through mobile networks, online resources, and new business models.
