What are the hurdles for the BoP user?

I’ve been using the blog as a tool to gather my thoughts and ruminate these last two days and had one last thought before I close for the day. What would be the barriers to entry for the BoP user before they could do what I do online? What are the hurdles? Jan Chipchase has done extensive work in observing such users. Must go delve into his site. But, in the meantime, any ideas?

    Eleventh is literacy, Twelfth is language. The numbers 1 to 10 would be food, clothing, shelter, money and then some value out of the whole thing! Only once she is through the basic needs could they look at anything beyond that, like going online for value.

    what if she went online for http://www.kiva.org through her mobile and was then enabled to provide 1-10
    would she then not need 11 to do that first?
