Financial Inclusion

Financial Services & Data Measurement (Pillar 4)


Bank of Uganda aims to enhance the framework for financial services data and measurement and provide a mechanism for monitoring and measuring financial inclusion indicators in Uganda.

Under this pillar, BOU partners with institutions such as the Uganda Bureau of Statistics, the Uganda Cooperative Savings and Credit Union, the Insurance Regulatory Authority and the Association of Microfinance Institutions in Uganda. It also collaborates with relevant Government Ministries and Departments,  supervised financial institutions,  the UK Department for International Development (DFID), GIZ, the Alliance for Financial Inclusion and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Key elements under this pillar include:

  • Formulation of a contextually relevant definition of financial inclusion and identification of key indicators to develop a financial inclusion data set.
  • Collection, compilation and dissemination of financial inclusion indicators relating to access, usage and quality on a regular basis.
  • Establishment of internal and external coordination structures with relevant partners/stakeholders.
