Mobile Usage at the Base of the Pyramid in Kenya

This study, funded by infoDev of the World Bank, looked at 800 mobile users in six locations across Kenya to understand mobile phone usage patterns among those at the "base of the pyramid." The project, which was awarded to iHub after a competitive tender, helped to boost iHub Research's reputation and establish the legitimacy of the work we were doing. The project was conducted over 6 months in 2012 and was widely taken up via local and global media outlets in early 2013.

This PECE essay helps to answer the STS Across Borders analytic question: “What people, projects, and products exemplify how this STS formation has developed over time?

This essay is part of a broader exhibit on iHub Research.
