- Expanding into market segments that have the greatest potential and opportunities for growth and revenue.
- Extending access of its products and services to new and unbanked populations through a convenient, safe and more effective delivery channel. To achieve coverage and extend banking services to our customers, Exim Agent Point partners are community based businesses delivering banking services on our behalf subject to Bank of Uganda approval.
