Enely A.'s story

Mambo (Greetings!) from Tanzania! This is 19-years-old Enely M. from Kyela. She is married with one child, who is one year old. Additionally, she is responsible for supporting one dependent because the child's parents can not take care of him.

Enely has been running a general store business since 2006. She sells rice, cooking oil, soda, soap, matches, and so forth. She works at the business for 9 to 12 hours per day, 6 days per week and is assisted by her husband. Enely currently earns about 50 USD a month from her business. She is requesting a loan of 775 USD in order to purchase additional stock of sugar, cooking oil, salt, soap and soda. In the future, she plans to increase the quantity and range of the stock. Enely thanks you for your support!

SELFINA has taken a lead role as a pioneer of micro-credit through micro-leasing in Tanzania. The organization is engaged in the economic empowerment of women and uses the provision of a leasing and leaseback microfinance facility. Customs and traditions in Tanzania make it difficult for women to own land and assets; thus they are deemed non-creditworthy by financial institutions. This leads to poor access to basic needs and services for women with low incomes. One of the primary advantages of micro-leasing is that it allows clients to use the equipment as collateral for future loans with SELFINA, enabling them to borrow larger sums in the future.
