Uzbekistan is the most densely populated country in Central Asia. Some 60% of its people live in rural regions.

The project aims to promote micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and to foster economic development in Uzbekistan, especially in rural areas. To this end, it is working to improve people’s and also MSMEs’ understanding of money matters, economic interrelationships and entrepreneurship. The project partner on site is the Women’s Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

In 2016, the project focused on introducing financial education to secondary schools and on helping the 14 independent non-bank advisory centres to continue their work to the benefit of MSMEs – especially small-scale farmers and entrepreneurs. In all, more than 100,000 pupils attended over 3,600 school events on financial topics where they learned about meaningful ways of using their pocket money and mobilising their savings. The women’s advisory centres provided seminars and intensive one-on-one financial counselling for more than 70,000 women.
