Who we are
Nile Micro Finance (NMF) is a limited liability company registered in 2007 and domiciled in Uganda. Our physical location is Plot 45 Go Down Road Arua Municipality, West Nile Region. Our vision is to be the choice of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in West Nile Sub Region. We aim to serve the market niche that finds it difficult to access services from the large conventional financial institutions (especially tiers 1-3). In essence and practice we are biased to the less privileged in our communities.
