Meet Thomas. Thomas is a loan officer in the Moshi branch of Opportunity Tanzania. When I asked him about himself he said he likes hip hop music, traveling, and helping out clients. His Trust Group adores him, as they should, he is a wonderful man who helps out whenever possible.
We talked about some of the challenges of being a loan officer on the bus ride to a Trust Group meeting and he confided in me that he doesn’t like disappointing clients by not meeting all of their needs but tries hard to accommodate them. Thomas enjoys working with people on a daily basis in and out of the Moshi office and on the weekends he goes out dancing for fun.
