Microfinance in Uganda
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 December 2017 stands at 112 members. This includes 88 ordinary members (MFIs) and 25 associate members (Other institutions and individuals supporting micro finance activities). Full directory can be downloaded from the members sections.
