FinScope Uganda 2009

The Ugandan government has made considerable efforts to reform and develop the country’s economy. Financial inclusion has become a contributing pillar to the achievement of Uganda’s Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP), as lack of access to suitable financial services is one of the biggest obstacles to development. Conducting the FinScope survey is part of the programme that supports the development of Uganda’s financial system as it analyses bottlenecks in the financial sector to determine which measures have the greatest impact on the country’s poor. FinScope Uganda supports regulators and policy makers as well as financial service providers. At the same time, FinScope has provided the private sector with valuable market information that they can, and have used, to improve service delivery and pursue greater outreach.
