FSD uses the “making markets work for the poor” (M4P) development approach. The M4P approach seeks to change market systems so that they work more effectively for the poor.
FSD Uganda uses a three pronged approach:
At the macro level, the financial sector would be strengthened by ensuring an appropriate legal and regulatory structure for the delivery of services to the poor.
The meso level would see the financial sector strengthened through the provision of appropriate support services.
While at the micro level, the capacity of financial sector would be improved to provide innovative financial services to the poor, including targeted savings products, support to informal savings and loans associations and targeted financial education programmes.
