RUFEP targets to increase access and use of financial services by poor rural men, women and youth by 140,000 households. Performance indicators for this target includes; (i) the number and percentage of the adult population actually using financial services and, (ii) a decline in the cost of borrowing for productive purposes for rural clients.

Two major outcomes are expected that would lead to achieving the Programme Development Objective (PDO):

i) Enhanced capacity of financial service providers(FSPs) to deliver demand driven services in rural areas; and,

ii) Improved efficiency and sustainability of rural financial services.
