PUBLISHED — 13th, November 2020

Procurement Reference Number: KCCA/CONS/20-21/00183

  1. The Kampala Capital City Authority ("KCCA") is implementing the presidential initiative on wealth and job creation is a new presidential initiative on wealth and job creation that is centred on various enterprises/categories/Emiyooga covering majority of Ugandans. The goal of the program is to create and improve household incomes of 68% Ugandans in Subsistence agriculture.
    The program is implemented through SACCOs formed at constituency level and the membership of the SACCOs are the associations formed at parish level.

    While the program is implemented with the above modality in all other districts, Kampala and Wakiso could not adopt the same methodology because of its uniqueness in terms of population and diversity and numbers and high concentration spots of the target enterprises that exist in some parts. 

    In lieu of the above, Kampala and Wakiso will have two mechanisms; Emyooga and the capital venture fund through the commercial banks to ensure that the unique needs of the people that live and work in Kampala and especially affected by COVID 19 are reached.
  2. KCCA now wishes to invite interested and eligible commercial banks capable of managing the custody of, distribution to the beneficiaries in form of loans and eventual recovery of the said funds when due.
