DAI Jobs – Team Leader- Digital Access to Finance at Development Alternatives Inc

Organisation: Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI)
: Kampala, Uganda
DAI is an employee-owned
global development company. For 40 years, we have worked on the frontlines of
international development, tackling fundamental social and economic development
problems caused by inefficient markets, ineffective governments, and
instability. Currently, DAI is delivering results that matter in some 60
countries. DAI is preparing for an anticipated programme that will contribute
towards sustainable improvements in the livelihoods of the rural poor through
increased digital financial inclusion. Digital financial inclusion encompasses
all forms of electronic payments, but given the landscape in Uganda, the focus
is particularly on using mobile phones as a mechanism for financial
transactions and services. Working with public and private stakeholders
including BoU, MoF, local telecoms, banks, and MFIs, the programme will coordinate,
concentrate, and amplify the efforts of organizations working in financial
inclusion in Uganda. The program will facilitate improvements in the digital
financial service ecosystem; supporting the development of payments platforms
and services that will lead to a wider range of financial services and delivery
mechanisms benefitting poor households and micro, small and medium enterprises
in Uganda.
