In September 2012, Bamboo Finance acquired participation in EFC Uganda, then a Tier 4 micro- finance institution (non-regulated). On 14 November 2014, EFC Uganda was granted a deposit taking license transitioning into regulated a Deposit Taking Microfinance Institution. This major milestone will make it possible for EFC to mobilize savings and expand the diversity of financial products available to Ugandan entrepreneurs. Similar to its sister companies, EFC Zambia and EFC Tanzania, the Institution was established by Développement International Desjardins (Canada) in line with their Entrepreneurs Financial Centre (EFC) model. The Institution is focusing on MSEs in Kampala and its surroundings.
