The Association of microfinance Association of Uganda has been trying to bring MFIs back to the drawing board by encouraging them to become socially accountable and relevant to their clients through social performance management (SPM). SPM is about making an organization's social mission a reality. It involves taking the steps to deliberately manage and achieve desired social results. AMFIU has been creating awareness and promoting social performance management among its members and the microfinance industry in Uganda and has had a positive response from the practitioners on this issue.
It is in this regard that AMFIU organized an award ceremony to recognize microfinance institutions that have made an effort in introducing and implementing SPM in their organizations. The award ceremony took take place on 27th September 2011 at Serena Hotel and BRAC Uganda emerged the overall Gold Winner.
