The banking sector in Uganda has seen steady progress over the years. In 2003, there were 14 commercial banks with a total asset base of Ugx 5.116 trillion, representing average assets per regulated bank of Ugx. 0.37 trillion. By the end of the year 2019, the sector’s total assets had risen to Ugx. 33.380 trillion, representing average total assets per regulated bank of Ugx. 1.28 trillion, representing a percentage asset base growth of 251% over the 16 years. Afriland First Bank from Cameroon also joined the financial sector to increase the number of regulated commercial banks in the country.

The financial sector also had lower asset quality with non-performing loans increasing from 5.1% of total loans to 5.4% with delinquency spreading around every economic segment. This was an overall decline in credit management.

At least seven (7) banks made losses compared to the 5 in 2019. This was by far due to high impairment charges especially banks like Tropical Bank, Orient and Top Finance Bank while some banks like Cairo suffered losses due to increased personnel costs.
