Expanding access to finance in Uganda
The majority of Uganda's 32 million citizens lack access to the financial sector, including banking services. MAP International, through its Business Call to Action initiative, seeks to remove barriers that prevent so many Ugandans from entering the former financial sector. MAP International connects mobile phone users to banking services, empowering them to manage their money more efficiently and effectively and create new opportunities for long-term economic growth.
MAP International has committed to provide two million people in Uganda with access to bank accounts; enroll up to 600,000 Government of Uganda employees into an electronic salary disbursement system; and expand access points across the country so that people can securely retrieve or transfer money.
