To provide financial training along with affordable and accessible financial services through letting stakeholders (farmers, but also employees, truckdrivers and out-growers) of sugar factories in Mayuge District Eastern Uganda getting paid via bank accounts, being the first step in their financial inclusion. By moving away from currently only cash based transactions, in this part of the value chain benefits are realized for the sugar factory and its off-takers. Those financially included will be able to store their money safe, control their expenses more accurately and conduct transactions more easily. Moreover, they will build a track record that would lead to financing opportunities in the longer run to grow their business and improve their quality of life. Finally the bank can benefit from cheap funding, transaction fees and future client selection for lending purposes.
