About the Founder

Rogers Turigye, hailing from a remote village in Southwestern Uganda, gained a profound understanding of the essential role women play in transforming communities at a young age. When his father passed away when he was only seven years old, Rogers’ mother, a struggling peasant widow, was left to provide for her family alone. Despite the immense difficulties, she tirelessly worked to put food on the table and pay for her children’s schooling, often resorting to begging from wealthy families and relying on the kindness of well-wishers.

Rogers learned the value of hard work from his mother, and his dedication paid off when he was awarded a full government scholarship to Uganda’s prestigious Makerere University. After completing his studies, he began his career in the banking industry, working his way up from a junior loans officer to a Regional Manager at two commercial banks.

In 2020, Rogers decided to leave his position and start his own enterprise, Maneni Instant Credit. This microfinance institution primarily serves economically active deprived women and youth in peri-urban and rural Uganda. To help support these struggling communities further, Rogers also allocated a percentage of his microfinance’s profits to establish the Centre for Transformation and Financial Inclusion (CETAFI). Having witnessed his mother’s struggles firsthand, Rogers understands the critical importance of reaching out to the women and youth of Uganda who are striving to improve their lives, just like his mother did.
