The iSAVE Program
The entry point to economic empowerment for persons with disabilities is creating an atmosphere that enables them to build self-confidence and freely engage with fellow community members.
This is an angle currently being explored by the iSAVE Economic Empowerment Program – developed and implemented by the National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda (NUDIPU) and Associations of Micro-Finance Institutions of Uganda (AMFIU), funded by the Norwegian Association for the Disabled (NAD). This learning brief captures lessons learned by the program on increasing access to finance for persons with disabilities through savings groups.
