Electronic Payments within a Limited Financial Infrastructure: Uganda’s Search for a Viable E-payments Solution to deliver Social Assistance Grants for Empowerment (SAGE)

Case Study published December 2, 2013

Reaching nearly 100,000 of Uganda’s senior and vulnerable citizens, Social Assistance Grants for Empowerment (SAGE) has demonstrated the need for tenacity and flexibility as it works to create a transparent and efficient social protection system in a country with limited payment infrastructure that is prone to a lack of transparency and leakage.

This is one in a series of case studies that was made possible by a grant from the Government of the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) to the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) in support of the work of the Better Than Cash Alliance.
