About US:
Tugende is a
for-profit social enterprise based in Uganda. Our mission is providing finance
and support to help the self-employed own income generating assets. Our core
product is a lease to own model for motorcycle taxi drivers (boda bodas) who
own their own motorcycles in 19 months or less with weekly payments similar to
what they otherwise pay to rent indefinitely from informal landlords. Ownership
significantly increases income, job security and road safety. Tugende currently
serves over 6,000 active customers in Uganda through 150+ employees across 7
branches, and 4,500 additional leases have already been fully repaid. With a
market for motorcycle taxis of over 800,000 drivers in East Africa alone,
Tugende is expanding rapidly in our core product. We are also building a
platform with our staff, branches, data, systems, and deep knowledge of earners
in the informal sector, which will easily enable us to expand into other asset
finance and value added services offerings in the near future.
