Expanding Financial Inclusion of Refugees in Uganda

The two main objectives of this study are: to compile data and evidence to increase Financial Service Providers’ (FSPs) knowledge of the potential client segment of refugees; and to clarify the  interventions and technical assistance needed by four participating FSPs to successfully offer or  scale up financial services to refugees in Uganda.

Platform for Inclusive Finance
NpM is a member platform for Dutch investors in the worldwide inclusive finance sector, like development organisations, social investors and commercial banks. Together with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and our members, we are committed to expanding access to affordable financial services worldwide. We believe in a clear link between financial inclusion and development. Access to financial services offers people the possibility to improve their living standards, which in turn reduces inequality. Inclusive finance can result in poverty alleviation, job creation, food security, gender equality, and equitable growth. It is our mission to increase the effectiveness of our members’ inclusive finance investments and activities. Therefore, we promote effective partnerships to combine efforts, and complement expertise and objectives. In addition, we support our members’ in contributing to the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
