Financial education for low-income households in Uzbekistan


We improve the financial capability of low-income households in Uzbekistan through building institutions and developing key infrastructure at the local, regional and national level

The second phase of the Financial education for low-Income households in Uzbekistan program was built on the success of the first phase, and sought to raise awareness of key stakeholders, built the capacity required to deliver financial education and social campaigns, and designed/launched tools and curricula required to equip low-incoming people with the skills to take charge of their financial lives. Importantly, we were also working on a national level to facilitate the development of a national strategy on financial education. This project, based on our Debt Management Module, was implemented in collaboration with the Association of Microfinance Institutions of Uzbekistan (NAMI).
