Today was my first day working at Tugende, the microfinance company where I’m working this month, and I couldn’t be happier of finally started my assignment here. The people are fantastic and the place is beautiful! I shot a short video of my first impressions and you probably can tell how excited I am for this opportunity (ok, perhaps you can’t tell because I’m not good good at this thing of smiling to the camera, but you get my point).
In my next posts I’ll go into the mission of Tugende, the sort of work that I’ll do here, and the main reason for this trip: seeing how microfinance work in the real world.
