You are building a savings culture that transforms families

Although Opportunity Uganda has restricted lending to avoid over-indebting clients during the country’s macro-economic challenges, it achieved strong growth in its outreach to families with savings accounts. Much of this growth was achieved by increasing community awareness through savings drives. Opportunity Uganda:

  • Boosts awareness by conducting savings drives every other Friday at alternating branches and via radio campaigns.
  • Mans each drive with 60 staff members who reach out to more than 500 community members, providing information about the benefits of saving as a tool for expanding business, funding education costs and preparing for emergencies.

Opportunity Uganda is increasing outreach through the following:

  • Adding additional branches in Soroti, Nansana and Mukono by year-end.
  • Increasing its mobile van fleet to three vans to reach more rural and remote families.
  • Funding 18 solar panel loans and 180 loans for housing repairs.
