Our Story

Women in Tanzania have an untapped potential for entrepreneurial development, they are faced by lack of necessary capacities such as skills, financial products & services, access to market and technology. Majority of the businesses owned by women are concentrated on the informal, micro, low growth and limited productivity with high competition.

The target businesses in favor of this project are MSMEs whose businesses are built on a small capital. Most of these businesses are conducted by poor women who are predominantly low-income earners and particularly with lower level of education.

Mama Alsaka Jamii experience of working with women in micro business value chain bring forward the opportunity to design and test a solution that will lead to improvement of Mama Lishe’s business with capacities of essentials business management skills, reliable supplies and access to responsive financial products/services, henceforth contributing to women financial inclusion and economic Empowerment.
