Viamo established its first office in Cambodia in 2016, opening up our efforts in SouthEast Asia. We are currently active in 9 countries and in one year we reached over 21 million people through our mobile services across the region.
Mobile penetration in Southeast Asia continues to increase at a rapid pace.
From 2005 to 2014 the percentage of Cambodian households that owned a mobile phone climbed from 20.1% to 87.2%. Smartphone penetration is also increasing but many in the region continue to have no or limited mobile internet access. The explosive growth of mobile device access allows Viamo to connect our partners with a significant and expanding portion of the population.
Viamo has been operating in South Asia since 2016. Despite the fact that digitization is advancing rapidly in several countries we are operating in, the gender gap in mobile internet use persists. Our Viamo Platform is widely used across the region, including Afghanistan and Nepal.
