National Microfinance Conference 2014

In 2012, AMFIU and the Government of Uganda, through the Microfinance department of the Ministry of finance, Planning and Economic Development agreed to jointly host the annual conference every two years, in effect taking it beyond targeting AMFIU members to focusing on all the sector shareholders.

The themes and sub-themes over the last 4 years demonstrate a big commitment share important topics and events that shape the microfinance industry in Uganda.

The theme for this year is Achieving Financial Inclusion in a Regulatory Environment in the East African Community. The conference is slated for 27th – 28th November 2014 in Kampala

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 December 2013 stands at 124 members. This includes 91 ordinary members (MFIs) and 33 associate members (Other institutions and individuals supporting micro finance activities). Full directory can be downloaded from the members sections.

Ordinary membership comprises any legally constituted organisation, whose activities focus on the direct provision of financial services to the informal, micro or small-scale enterprise sector in Uganda. This includes formal sector banks, credit institutions, Microfinance Deposit-taking Institutions (MDIs), Non deposit taking MFIs and SACCOs. Associate membership comprises institutions that promote micro finance eg other apex insititutions, wholesalers of funds, regional network organisations, capacity building suppliers, such as consultants, private sector development centers (DPCs) etc. There is also a provision for individual associate membership for people carrying out activities directly or indirectly related to microfinance.
