Number of agents in the area - mobile money business.
Before starting any type of business one should always make research on how many business many and women are dealing in a such type of a business and am saying this basing on the principle of monopoly but I don't encourage you to rely on the principle because these days it's hard to find a business that you will be doing alone in the area but rather start a business with a few number of competitors so that is the reason why I recommend you making research on the number of agents in the area before you invest your cash in this type of business.
