The project intends to provide refugees in Uganda with fully fledged bank accounts from which to access their humanitarian aid payments. Equity Bank Uganda Limited (EBUL) targets to set up their systems and processes to ease refugee verification, facilitate account opening and aid financial literacy. They will also set up the enabling infrastructure for cash outs by extending their existing agent banking network to the refugee settlements and host communities. In this way, EBUL will provide the necessary and relevant infrastructure to enable the digitization of humanitarian payments in Uganda while simultaneously availing a wide array of financial services to this underserved market segment
