Airtel Uganda, Grameen Foundation and Plan Uganda introduce a new Group Savings product for Village Savings & Loan Associations

Kampala, Uganda, August 13, 2014 - Airtel Uganda, Grameen Foundation and Plan Uganda today in Kamuli launched a new group savings solution to serve savings groups across Uganda. Airtel Uganda, in conjunction with Grameen Foundation, has developed a service that will allow Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs) and other forms of savings groups, such as Chamas or investment clubs, to store their group’s cash as mobile money. This was made possible by a grant received from the GSMA mWomen Programme, which works with the mobile industry to increase women’s access to and use of mobiles.
