Overview :

UN Capital Development Fund is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 49 least developed countries. It creates new opportunities for poor people and their communities by increasing access to microfinance and investment capital. UNCDF focuses on Africa and the poorest countries of Asia and the Pacific, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict or crisis. It provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help microfinance institutions reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments – water systems, feeder roads, schools, irrigation schemes – that will improve poor peoples’ lives. Financial inclusion means universal access, at a reasonable cost, to a wide range of financial services, provided by a variety of sound and sustainable institutions. The range of financial services includes savings, short and long-term credit, leasing and factoring, mortgages, insurance, pensions, payments, local money transfers and international remittances.

Mobile Money for the Poor (MM4P) and its funders -the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and The MasterCard Foundation- are committed to producing and sharing knowledge and learning for and with the partners of the programme. And Uganda is part of this commitment. MM4P will implement several projects and host events with various DFS stakeholders including providers, regulators, agents and customers.

The MM4P programme in Uganda is piloting several programmes digitising bulk payments in agricultural value chains across the country. To further accelerate and promote the uptake of digital financial services across agricultural value chains, UNCDF, in partnership with CGAP is looking to organise a serie of recurring events, showcasing main challenges and innovative solutions as well as providing a platform for networking.

The overall objectives are as follows:

  • To bring together different stakeholders interested in digital financial services in agricultural value chains
  • To create a platform for networking and where lessons learned from UNCDF’s pilots in the various agricultural value chains as well as experience from other stakeholders can be shared to improve uptake of digital financial services.
  • To connect problems and solutions and showcase innovations through an exhibition of technological solutions.
