Directory of Microfinance Institutions
in Uganda

 Microfinance institutions (MFIs) are organisations that provide savings and/or credit facilities to micro and small scale business people. MFls provide financial services to poor people who have experienced difficulties obtaining these services from most formal financial institutions because their businesses, savings levels and credit needs are all small. MFIs in Uganda include two banks, several companies limited by shares and a large number of NCiOs, companies limited by guarantee, cooperatives and credit unions.

This Directory provides information on the MFIs that have received support from the USAID-funded PRESTO Project's Center for Microenterprise Finance. Contact information is also presented on the Government's Poverty Alleviation Project, the Uganda Cooperative Alliance and the Uganda Cooperative Savings and Credit Union. These institutions can provide more information on the smaller NGOs, cooperatives and credit unions in their respective programs.
