In the aid sector, cash programming is often touted as enabling choice for the beneficiaries, which it can.  One of the rarely talked about side ‘benefits’ of cash is surveillance.  Especially, when electronic vouchers are being used, aid organisations can see what people are buying, where, for how much, etc.  Weirdly, it’s a bit like big brother.

Probably not the intended consequence we were aiming for.
