Pamoja Nguvu
Strong together

By offering small loans, Pamoja Nguvu offers women and starting entrepreneurs in Tanzania a chance to become financially sustainable and independent.

Together towards a
better life

In Tanzania, many people live below the poverty threshold. Especially women who work hard, often for their own business. They barely earn enough to support themselves, or to provide their children with three meals per day and send them to school, for example.

There are even women who are not able to take care of their children at all and have to send them to an orphanage. A microcredit, a small amount for Western standards, can already help this group of people to live a more stable life.

By offering microcredits, Pamoja Nguvu helps this group of vulnerable women to live an independent life.

As part of the Happy Watoto Homes and Schools foundation, Pamoja Nguvu also offers support to Happy Watoto graduates, both girls and boys (hereafter referred to as “starting entrepreneurs”), giving them the chance to a successful start.

Your donation helps

Your donation unlocks a chain of financial aid and support. When a loan is paid off, we use this amount to fund a new loan. Your (one-off) donation is therefore re-used time and time again to support a new woman or starting entrepreneur.
