The Grameen Credit Agricole Foundation launches a tender procedure: Refugees' market assessment for financial inclusion in Uganda and Jordan
The Grameen Credit Agricole Foundation, in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Swedish Development Agency (Sida), wishes to appoint qualified consultants/consultancy firms to carry out an assessment on the financial needs of refugees and the business case for serving them in Uganda and Jordan.
The consultant will carry-out an in-depth analysis of the demand for financial and non-financial products and services among refugees and their host communities in the districts of West Nile and South West in Uganda, as well as in camps and urban areas in Jordan. The aim of the study is to gain a robust understanding of this market’s unmet financial needs and opportunities for financial service providers (FSPs) to profitably serving them.
The findings will help FSPs design credit products that can support business activities and consumption needs of the target market; the research will also provide essential information about the demand for savings accounts, payments services and other products and services that FSPs could be offering.
Applications should be submitted by 8th January 2018.
