To give disadvantaged communities access to loans in the Eastern Cape. Tlholo would like to see 90% of microbusinesses owned by women and make sure that they participate in local economic development.
Background and Main Challenges:
In September 1999 Tlholo was founded and it was incorporated in March 2000. One main challenge relates to finding qualified staff. Lack of on-lending funds and operational grants inhibit potential growths. However, by March 2003 Thlolo had 244 clients and almost double its outreach to 435 clients in March 2004. Other challenges include shifts in funders, prescribed operational rules and lack of infrastructure
