The briefing, produced by CARE International in Uganda, outlines the existing barriers to linking informal savers to formal services, and recommends specific steps that can be taken to overcome these barriers.
Financial inclusion in Uganda
Since 2011 the Ugandan government has taken steps to double the number of adults accessing formal financial services from 28% in 2009 to 54% in 2013. However, 2.6 million adults remain excluded (15% of the adult population). This CARE International policy brief sets out how Uganda can capitalise upon existing good practice and innovation to become a leader in increasing access to formal finance in the East African region.
