Togo’s president Faure Gnassingbé has looked to solve that problem with Novissi, a digital cash transfer program that sends funds to citizens through mobile money. The program targets informal workers whose incomes were “disrupted” by lockdowns.  As of mid-April, over 1.1 million Togolese citizens had registered for Novissi with around 450,000 people (65% of which were women) proving eligible beneficiaries and receiving up to 35% of the minimum wage.
