In the Morro dos Macacos community in Rio de Janeiro, Mobile Metrix assisted the government in better understanding community demographics and needs, as well as identified qualifying populations for the Bolsa Familia (Family Grant) conditional cash transfer social assistance program.

Among the findings were astounding statistics on employment: 37% of residents were unemployed, 25% of individuals received no income for their household, and 38% of individuals earned below the minimum wage. This essential information guided the government in directing their resources for social programs.
