A DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM WITH EVEN MORE EXCITING TIME AHEAD
There are exciting developments in Uganda for remittances with improvements to domestic interoperability planned, roll-out of a new national ID scheme, a real-time eKYC scheme for ID verification planned, an innovative shared agency banking network to address rural financial inclusion, high-use of mobile money, a burgeoning fintech sector and new regulations for payment service providers. Hopefully this will result in a more efficient and cheaper remittance market.
This research is part of a series of country diagnostics in selected African countries, in implementation of the Platform for Remittances, Investments and Migrants’ Entrepreneurship in Africa (PRIME Africa) initiative. The diagnostic report has been developed and presented to key stakeholders in the country. It details all aspects of the remittance market, including key players, stakeholders, and recommendations.
