WELCOME TO THE UGANDA SMALL SCALE INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION ABOUT US OUR VISION To be the leading organization in the promotion and development of small scale value addition industries as the engine of growth in Uganda.

Welcome To Uganda Small Scale Industries Association

The Uganda Small Scale Industries Association (USSIA) is a not-for-profit business association of Micro, Small and Medium Industries (MSMI’s) with a strong membership base of about 5,000 registered Micro, Small and Medium Industries. USSIA is driven to support and equip small and medium-sized enterprises especially the small-scale industrial sector of Uganda for success and economic growth.

USSIA was formed in 1979 out of the realization that there was a gap in terms of the representation and support of professional small and medium enterprises that want to grow and become large enterprises. Since then, the organization has grown to enormous levels. However, USSIA is still a grassroots based association representing MSMEs all over Uganda.
