From 2015 to 2020, HERfinance Digital Wages Program worked with 10 global buyers and 75 garment factories in Dhaka and Chittagong in Bangladesh, supported by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and three implementing partners: Change Associates, MAMATA, and Young Power in Social Action (YPSA). By December 2019, 64 factories (representing 148,954 workers, 57 percent of them female) had adopted digital wages, and more than 100,400 workers were being paid via a bKash or Dutch-Bangla Bank Rocket payroll account.

This report presents the impacts of the project, as well as recommendations for global buyers, financial service companies, local organizations, and development organizations.
