Government-to-Person (G2P) Payments: How is Angola Reaching the Poor and Vulnerable During COVID-19?

Social assistance payments are being digitized for the first time under Angola’s first poverty-targeted cash transfer project, Kwenda, which started in May 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the Government-to-Person (G2P) Payments initiative, the World Bank’s Finance, Competitiveness & Innovation Global Practice, or FCI, and the Social Protection and Jobs engagements in Angola have come together to advance the agenda on payments digitization. In this video, we hear from Mazen Bouri, the World Bank Task Team Leader for the project. G2Px Around the World is a video series that will showcase the work of G2Px Initiatives across different countries.
