Founder & CEO, Selfina
 

Victoria is the Founder of Selfina, a company in Tanzania that provides micro-leasing to widows and young girls. Victoria is a leader who has used innovation, initiative, and determination to empower women in Tanzania to become economically self-sufficient. Given women’s lack of collateral and resulting lack of access to capital, Victoria began pioneering micro-leasing as a solution. Her model exists as an alternative to financing women and has generated praise beyond Tanzania, with efforts under way to expand the model to other countries in the region. Selfina has financed 27,000 women, created 150,000 jobs, with over 250,000 people impacted.
