BPI Uganda

BPI Uganda is a specialist risk finance company that provides customised financial solutions, sectoral knowledge, mentorship, and other added-value services for formal small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Financing solutions

We offer both business and commercial property finance. The investments we make are structured using equity, royalties and term loans, or any combination of these.

Once the potential return of the venture and level of risk have been assessed, an individual solution will be structured.

Do you qualify?

When you start your application for finance you will need to submit a business plan, after which you will meet with an investment officer for a free initial consultation.

Your application will be assessed on the viability of your business, your integrity, drive and experience, as well as your ability to manage a successful independent enterprise. Should your application be approved, we will develop a customised investment and added-value solution for you and your business.

Capital and security are not necessarily required for an application to be accepted, as each investment is individually structured according to your needs. We only accept applications for financing of viable owner managed businesses between UGX200 million and UGX3,5 billion.


During the initial investment negotiations a repayment plan will be structured in consultation with you, to meet your needs. The usual repayment period is between three to five years.

Technical Assistance

From the very start of your journey with us, right through to the end of your repayment period, you will benefit from the Technical Assistance Programme (TAP).

The TAP (or mentorship programme) provides added value services for the entrepreneur (business owner) ranging from accounting support, problem solving, marketing plans to turnaround solutions.

Business plan

Your business plan is a vital part of your application and, as such, specific attention should be given to four key areas:

  • The business itself, as well as the management thereof
  • The market in which it operates
  • The financial management and planning thereof
  • The risks and rewards associated with the total investment in the business

To assist you with creating your business plan, a free model is available here.
