The association has the following objectives:

  • Enhance collective action by MFIs and other stakeholders for a conducive policy and regulatory environment for microfinance in Uganda.
  • Develop and strengthen system for information collection, analysis, and dissemination through databases, print and electronic media.
  • Strengthen the capacity of MFIs to deliver appropriate and sustainable financial services to the economically productive poor through co-ordination and organization of lateral learning workshops, thematic debates, exchange visits, and linkages with other organizations.
  • Develop and operationalise a Performance Monitoring System for MFIs that will help set standards and benchmarks as well as increase professionalism in the Microfinance sub-sector.
  • Strengthen AMFIU’s secretariat to provide the required and mandated service to its members and the microfinance industry at large.


The vision of AMFIU is to be a strong, sustainable and professional network of all micro-finance stakeholders in Uganda.
