DFCU Ltd is one of the strongest financial institutions in Uganda dating back to 1964. DFCU was created to support the development of the Ugandan Economy by providing financial services to Ugandans in form of long term lending followed by leasing in 1999 and consequently banking in May 2000. Norfund is invested in the company through Arise, and Norfinance, and has also provided a loan to DFCU.
DFCU is particularly addressing the growing need in the Ugandan market for longer-term funding in key areas such as commercial mortgages, home loans, leases and SME loans.
Norfund's holding was in 2014 transferred to Norfinance AS, and in 2016 further transferred to Arise B.V.
