Mission

Our mission is to increase income for smallholder farmers in East Africa through productive asset-financing and trainings.

What We Do

Bicycles Against Poverty is a social enterprise which provides asset financing loans to rural smallholder farmers in Northern Uganda. With our first product, a lease to own bicycle, our farmer customers tripled market attendance and increased income by over 35%. They can carry five times as much and go four times as far. We've already distributed around 2,500 loans, and are at a catalytic moment as we increase our portfolio with other products in the agricultural value chain.

BAP is committed to the principle that farmers deserve the opportunity to invest in tools that will propel them forward. That's why our goal by the end of 2021 is to reach 10,000 more Ugandan farmers and introduce three new farmer finance products into our portfolio.
