  • Through its partnership with DWM, TPC was able to overcome a liquidity challenge linked to the global economic downturn by renegotiating the renewal of existing credit lines and securing new sources of local and international funding
  • As a result of better loan officer training and a revamped loan approval process initiated by DWM, the quality of TPC’s loan portfolio improved significantly as the percentage of non-performing loans fell and an initial and sharp decline in its customer base was reversed
  • To recover market share, TPC rolled out new lending products including agricultural and home improvement loans tailored to the firm’s repeat customers and farming clientele
  • In partnership with foreign development groups, DWM spearheaded a financial literacy initiative aimed at cultivating its clients’ bookkeeping skills and preventing overindebtedness amongst borrowers
