According to the World Bank, Tanzania's economy has been growing steadily for the last decade.

One of the companies that has benefitted most from that growth is Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited (METL).

Meeting the day-to-day needs of ordinary consumers, it makes products that range from cashew nuts to toothpaste, bicycles to soap.
