Partner Description:

UGAFODE Microfinance Limited
is a microfinance deposit taking institution regulated by the Bank of Uganda that provides a range of loan products -- with special focus on rural clients -- including business loans, group loans, micro-mortgage loans, agricultural loans and flexible housing loans. As of fall 2011, it had a loan portfolio of USD$2.9 million, nine branches, and about 5,300 active borrowers.

UGAFODE has a strong social focus, and tailors loan products to low-income and underserved clients. Four of its branches are located in rural areas 300 km from Kampala, and each branch works with clients within a 50 km radius. Funding from Kiva will allow UGAFODE to grow its innovative loan programs to better serve these individuals, like its agriculture and housing loans -- as well as green loans to help clients adopt sustainable business practices.

Based in Kampala, UGAFODE has strong governance structures in place, with an experienced executive team and board members with backgrounds in banking, accounting, microfinance and law. Accordingly, it has been able to attract stable sources of funding from organizations like Opportunity International, Oiko Credit, and Habitat for Humanity Uganda. The combination of seasoned leadership and solid funding has allowed the organization to post steady growth since its founding in 1994.

The partnership with Kiva will help UGAFODE make an even greater impact on the lives of underserved and underbanked clients in western and central Uganda.
