Uganda Green Enterprise Finance Accelerator has announced that African startups can apply for its UGEFA Program. The accelerator program is a four-year European Union (EU)- a funded project supporting green enterprises with access to tailored loans and direct acceleration support.

The program will focus on assisting startups looking to raise between $10,000 to $100,000 in the financing, while also providing successful applicants with targeted support to refine their business and financial plans which support the enterprise’s loan application. Startups will be matched with partner banks to access discounted loans designed to meet their financial needs.
