Since our launch in Uganda in 2006, BRAC has become the largest development organisation in the country and a major provider of microfinance.
We now operate 89 branches in 39 districts with more than 150,000 microfinance members. This past year, we disbursed USD 24 million in loans to poor women, eclipsing the combined total of 2006 to 2008. BRAC takes an integrated Microfinance Multiplied approach to helping people rise out of poverty and realise their potential.
We provide support services in agriculture, livestock and poultry, health, adolescent development and youth education. BRAC’s programmes are bolstered by rigorous research, monitoring and auditing. To build capacity we comprehensively train our members and staff. At the end of 2009, we employed 1,572 Ugandans (85% women), many of whom are promoted within the organisation.
