The Role Regulators Play in Closing the Financial Inclusion Gender Gap: A Case Study of Uganda

The increase in women's financial inclusion in Uganda is largely attributed to the rise of mobile money.

Outside that realm, women still utilize informal financial services like village savings and loan associations and rotating savings and credit associations. There is an opportunity for improved coordination and collaboration of the ecosystem players under the new national financial inclusion strategy and an explicit focus on women’s access and usage.

This case study offers an overview of the current state of women’s financial inclusion in Uganda.
