Profira Project

The events during the Covid19 pandemic have posed a major risk to the existence of VSLA by altering their existing processes, making it impossible for groups to meet (at least for 4 months during which the Government of Uganda had imposed a lockdown).

The 500 VSLAs that utilized the app were eventually unable to conduct meetings or utilize the app during the Covid19 times because the app was initially designed to support the group keep track of its cash transactions without the option to process cashless transactions.

MSC Project

Over the last decade,there has been a proliferation of initiatives to expand access to formal financial services in underserved markets through savings groups. Initiatives to link VSLAs to Financial Service Providers (FSPs) have resulted in improved access to finance for VSLA members; however,several challenges remain before these efforts can reach scale Low supply of financial services - Lack of business credit is emphasized as the primary obstacle, with informal structures insufficient to meet the needs of members of these VSLAs. Limited delivery channels - Formal financial services are limited, primarily due to physical inaccessibility to the rural VSLAs. This results in high accessibility costs for the VSLAs and individuals. Lack of financial knowledge- A lack of understanding by VSLAs on how to utilize formal services, and how to make informed decisions regarding these services.
