COVID-19 Relief Efforts: Message from the CEO

Helping People Help Themselves

Dear Customers and Stakeholders

Tugende exists to help informal sector entrepreneurs grow, thrive and own their future. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we know clients are struggling to take care of their families. When they suffer, we suffer.

Tugende is itself facing challenges. However, we are committed to being with our clients during the best and the worst of times. Below is what we are doing to help our clients, their communities, and our employees in Uganda and Kenya:

  • Understanding: Clients retain assets and can keep working/moving, where allowed
  • Flexibility: 2-month suspension of all penalties until 25th May 2020
  • Support: UGX 25,000 / KES 700 unconditional cash transfer for 23,000+ active clients
  • Team: 460+ staff working full time to support Tugende community

We will keep looking for further ways to help. Stay Safe, Stay Strong.

Tugende – Own your future
