Mobile Salary Payment (MSP)

  • Mobile Salary Payment (MSP) Description:

Mobile Salary Payment (MSP) plays a prominent role in the considerations of the Government of Afghanistan, to digitize government-to-person (G2P) payments and to enhance financial inclusion. After a pilot in the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs & Disabled (MoLSAMD), H.E. the President assigned Asan Khedmat to lead the scale-up of MSP to the Ministry of Education and other line ministries. Mobile Salary Payments (MSP) is a reform initiative of the government of Afghanistan and is one of the means of financial digitization and strengthening financial inclusion. The government of Afghanistan began engaging with MSP in 2015. The first ministry to undergo a pilot rollout was MOLSAMD where 4000 Kabul based staff now receive salaries through MSP. MOLSAMD plans on expanding MSP services to its provincial staff and to its beneficiaries. Another rollout, also beginning in 2015 is covering 15000 MOI staff in 49 districts of 12 provinces of Afghanistan. The government has now decided to expand MSPs to MOE beginning with the three provinces of Nangarhar (summer calendar, First Grade Province), Farah (Relatively inaccessible province) and Parwan (relatively accessible province).
