Welcome to the Uganda Rural Challenge Fund!

The Governments of Germany and Uganda decided to set up the Rural Finance Enhancement Programme (RFEP) to improve access to sustainable and demand-driven financial services for the rural population and rural Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) in Uganda. This is to contribute to the deepening and broadening of the financial sector in Uganda, as well as to the development of the private sector, thus fostering the improvement of the economic and social conditions of rural population in Uganda.

Under this framework, KfW has established the Uganda Rural Finance Facility of which the Uganda Rural Challenge Fund (URCF) is the first component.

Agribusiness Initiative Trust (aBi Trust), is the Programme-Executing Agency.
