Partner description:

Anza is a nonprofit organization based in Tanzania that provides entrepreneurs the capacity, capital and community they need to thrive via the Anza Accelerator, Growth Fund and Kili Hub spaces, a coworking space. Their services assist entrepreneurs to strengthen their operations, increase profitability and scale their social impact to create more jobs and improve access to Tanzania’s underserved markets. In addition, Anza is actively engaged in shaping and maturing Tanzania’s innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem.

A unique lending approach:

Anza has partnered with the Aga Khan Foundation to provide business development support and training to small and medium agricultural enterprises in 2 regions of Tanzania and is in talks to expand this partnership. They are also a partner/grantee of the Segal Family Foundation, which supports a number of Kiva Field Partners.

The loans Anza will fundraise on Kiva will allow them to support Tanzanian social enterprises.

These entrepreneurs work to solve a social or environmental challenge in Tanzania and serve low to middle income Tanzanians. Anza also strives to work with 50% women-led businesses, who are particularly excluded in Tanzania.
