Mbarara district was originally known as Ankore region during the 1970's. It was divided into east Ankore and West Ankore but was renamed during the Idi Amin regime.
Mbarara is located in south-western Uganda.
Mbarara is a very agricultural district. Currently the district is the leading producer of matoke (bananas) in Uganda.
The main cash crops grown here are bananas, vegetables, Irish potatoes, coffee, maize and beans. Plantain are the major staple food, others being sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, beans and maize.
Electricity is available for industrial and domestic use in urban areas. Boreholes, spring and wells are the main sources of water in villages but there is piped water in most towns.
