Financial Inclusion for Refugees Project

The Financial Inclusion for Refugee program at UGAFODE was started with the aim of offering financial services to refugees who are considered a perceived risk by most of the financial institutions hence exclusion from accessing services. The Board of Directors UGAFODE Microfinance Ltd (MDI) and the Regulator Bank of Uganda approved a pilot project for the provision of financial services to refugees, which has attracted the opening of over 400 accounts for urban refugees to date.
