What we do?

We help tens of thousands of women in Uganda to start or expand small businesses. The women are micro-entrepreneurs: they want to start a two acre farm, open a little shop, invest in fertilizers, buy a cow or a few pigs – over the years we have seen hundreds and hundreds of different business ideas. Through an innovative model, we support these entrepreneurial women by giving them a small business loan to get started.

Our principles
Prioritized

Helping the extreme poor of rural Uganda, who are truly stuck in a poverty trap.

Efficient

Using 100% of your donation to help the women, and recycling your donation after every microcredit repayment.

Innovative

Developing new organization models and using technology to work where others cannot.

Non-patronizing

Supporting the women to develop their own potential with simple financial services, without telling them what to do.

Where do we work?

Mukono and Buikwe in Central Uganda

SYPO works in the districts Mukono and Buikwe in Central Uganda, bordering Lake Victoria, the world’s largest tropical lake. It’s a primarily agricultural region, growing coffee, vanilla, bananas, and other crops. SYPO originally started in this area, and it’s the region we know best. We grow in small ‘zones’; typically a village in the middle and a few smaller villages and farm areas around it. Each zones supports up to 1,000 micro-entrepreneurs. The demand for more microcredits is still overwhelming; we need your help and donations to reach thousands more women and help them start their businesses. See the graphic to the right for our growth plans.
