Rushere is a savings and credit cooperative that serves rural borrowers in southwest Uganda. In this region, cattle ownership is a cultural cornerstone, so many of Rushere’s loans are for cattle. Rushere’s management team intends to meet this demand so that the market can support a shift to more commerce-based business. Rushere is diversifying its portfolio with new products, including agriculture insurance which would cover farmers and cattle owners and a biogas product that is cleaner and safer than regular fuel. They are also doing more value chain lending in cattle, bananas, and coffee. The rest of Rushere’s portfolio includes loans for micro-business, household solar panels, and education.
