A Critical Analysis Of The Impact Of Mortgage Transaction On Uganda's Economy

Abstract

This study was conducted in Central Uganda with the research entitled 'A critical analysis

of the impact of mortgage transaction on Uganda's development. Uganda economy is

smallholder agro-based employing over 80% of the population which is mostly rural.

Women contribute the bulk (over 70%) of the agricultural labour force. Traditionally

proceeds from these activities mostly accrue to men as they perceive themselves as

owners of the land which women cultivate and as heads of households. On the other

hand, a substantial proportion of men engage in either the informal self - employment or

as wage earners in urban centres. This situation notwithstanding, the changing trends

such as rapid urbanization, poverty and increasing number of femaleheaded households

has also contributed to an increasing number of women joining the commercial sector

both formal and informal. Currently the proportion of women in the informal sector

particularly in urban centres is almost the same as that of men. An increasing number of

women are involved in trade, real estate and service sector; yet, the chances of accessing

credit both in the formal banking and the informal sectors is premised on possessing

tangible collateral in form of immovable and/or movable property. Mortgaging enables the

individual property owner to raise other forms of capital mainly credit to undertake or

continue with other economic activities because of its impact on capital accumulation

(Mugume: 2004). Access to formal credit is premised on the existence of negotiable

security and availability of a reliable stream of income to service the loan. In Uganda's

context, the most suitable negotiable security is a title deed arising out of registered land
