In August 2019, we launched the Financial Inclusion for Refugees Project (FI4R) commissioned by FSD Uganda in collaboration with FSD Africa. The FI4R project will provide insights into the financial strategies employed by refugees over time to build their livelihoods and manage their finances. The project will also support three financial service providers (FSPs) Equity Bank Uganda Limited (EBUL), Vision Fund Uganda (VFU) and Rural Finance Initiative (RUFI) to offer financial services to refugees and host communities.
This is the first Financial Diaries project with refugees that will provide a detailed picture, over the course of a year, about the incomes, expenditures and financial flows of refugee households.
Here are some preliminary observations from the field.
