Uganda

Ugandan Shilling (UGX)

Uganda remains relatively cash-dependent. In 2018, over 70% of the population was reportedly still unbanked. Since 2020, however, efforts have been made to mitigate risks associated with e-payment platforms, and by the end of the year, the country’s mobile money industry had reached $46B (USD).
