Welcome to AMFIU

The Association of Microfinance Institutions of Uganda (AMFIU) is an umbrella organisation of microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Uganda. AMFIU was founded in November 1996, through the collaboration of several organisations with interest in microfinance. The main reasons for its establishment were the felt need for MFIs to have a common voice; to lobby government for favourable policies; to share information and experiences; and to link up and network with both local and international actors.

AMFIU is a member-founded and member-owned institution. Membership as of June 2021 stands at 132 members. This includes 109 ordinary members (MFIs) and 23 associate members (Other institutions and individuals supporting micro finance activities). Full directory can be downloaded from the members sections.

Job Opportunity: Business Development Manager

In order to ensure the sustainability of its operations and build their internal resource base, German Sparkassenstiftung for International Cooperation
(DSIK) supported AMFIU to launch the AMFIU Business Consult (ABC) which is the commercial wing of the Association. Now the Association desires to hire the services of a Business Development Manager to spearhead this initiative.
