Financial Sector Deepening Uganda (FSDU) is an independent not-for-profit company committed to promoting greater access to financial services in Uganda. FSD Uganda seeks to develop a more inclusive financial sector with a focus on low-income individuals (particularly women) and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). We support innovation, conduct research, help promote and improve policy, laws and regulation that shape the financial sector in Uganda.

FSD Uganda works with both public and private sector players to develop sustainable improvements in the livelihoods of low-income individuals through reduced vulnerability to shocks, increased incomes and employment creation.

FSD Uganda is currently funded by the Department for International Development (DFID)/UKaid  and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is part of a network of nine financial sector deepening organisations working across Sub-Sahara Africa.)

Our Objective is a deeper, broader and more inclusive financial sector in Uganda.

As a market facilitator, FSD Uganda partners with various stakeholders in financial inclusion to influence and support changes in the market systems for financial inclusion of the active poor. To do our work, we rely heavily on research to understand the market and encourage the use of data for decision making. We mainly focus on the financial sector services aided by technology because this intersection is the centre of an ecosystem that helps us all to decrease poverty.
