Microfinance & Saving Schemes
Rural areas in Uganda are less developed compared to urban areas. It has been found that the reason for the underdevelopment of rural areas is because of the migration of young people from villages to towns in search of better employment opportunities (http://zuniaorg/post/addressing-the-rural-development-problem-in-uganda).
