Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) Uganda and FSD Africa – in collaboration with BFA Global will present insights from a baseline survey conducted in January 2020 to understand the financial lives of refugees in Uganda and how COVID-19 has affected delivery by Financial Service Providers (FSPs) who serve them. Findings from the baseline survey shed light on how the livelihoods of refugees have changed since they settled in Uganda, and the different ways they have adapted their financial behavior. Implementing partners in the project will share insights on the impact of COVID-19 on their clients and programs. VisionFund Uganda will take participants through their survey on the impact of COVID-19 on refugee saving groups in Uganda, while Equity Bank Uganda and Rural Finance Initiative (RUFI) will share lessons learned as a result of the pandemic
