According to its board chairperson Mr. Samuel Aboneg, it is not the first time for PEUBO INVESTMENTS to review its interest rates. He cited that they have reduced interest rates in 2016 and 2019 and lately in the Month of October 2021. Aboneng further indicated that this continuous review of the interest rates has made PEUBO INVESTMENTS to be amongst the cheapest micro lenders in the market. “This is why our members need not to consider borrowing elsewhere but in PEUBO where their interests are safe guarded.

He said.

Aboneng also pointed out that COVID 19 has had a lot of detrimental effects on the lives of BOSETU members and Batswana in general. “Our members find themselves having a very high dependency ratio and must take care of many lives which have been affected by COVID 19. We know that many Batswana have lost jobs and others who have been surviving by small businesses have find it very difficult to survive due to endless business disruptions. Our members, being in the formal sector, find themselves having to take care of these family members who are currently struggling to earn the ends meet”. Said Aboneng
