About Self Microfinance

SELF Microfinance Fund is a product of Government Project which was known as ‘Small Entrepreneurs Loan Facility (SELF)” formed in 1999. SELF Project was among Government programmes pursuing poverty alleviation role on behalf of the Government which was jointly funded by Government of Tanzania and African Development Bank (AfDB).

The performance of the Project was significantly notable, and thus it was found to be beneficial to transform the Project into a sustainable entity beyond its project life to enable it pursue further this noble role. The Cabinet sitting of 13th June 2014; assented SELF II Project to transform to Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG), which conforms adequately on status incorporation, business form, assets transfer and ownership. SELF Microfinance Fund was incorporated on 14th September 2014 under Company Act 2002 as a Company Limited by Guarantee and the main guarantor being the Government of United Republic of Tanzania through the Ministry of Finance and Planning under the Treasury Registrar.
