This book is the product of the study to determine the needs and uses of the informal economy in Uganda. To achieve this purpose, a review of literature on the informal economy and that of the information systems and services in Uganda was done. The demographic, business and cultural characteristics of this economy were established as a basis for identifying the information needs and exploring the ways in which entrepreneurs seek for information and the sources they use to access information. The study also explored the uses to which information is put to and the impact that information has on the economy. Factors affecting access to information and shortcomings in the information services and systems of Uganda were identified. Solutions are suggested to improve upon the country''s information system. Finally, an information model, which generates an agenda for further research, is proposed.
