“JIKWAMUE” YA BENKI YA AZANIA YAWAFAIDISHA WAENDESHA BODABODA KAGONGWA .

Benki ya Azania imezidi kuwafaidisha wajasiliamali wadogo na kuwawezesha kujiongezea kipato baada ya kukabidhi pikipiki mpya 9 kwa waendesha Bodaboda kutoka Kagongwa wilayani Kahama mkoa wa Shinyanga kupitia mkopo wa masharti nafuu unaotolewa na Benki hiyo maarufu kama “Jikwamue”.

 

Hafla ya kukabidhi pikipiki hizo imefanyika mwishoni mwa wiki katika tawi la Benki hiyo lililoko Kagongwa, wilayani Kahama na kuhudhuriwa na wadau mbalimbali akiwamo mbunge wa jimbo la Msalala Mh.Iddy Hamis Iddy, mkuu wa polisi Kagongwa Bw. Oswald Nyarobi, Mchumi wa Halmashauri ya Kahama Bi.Flora Sangilwa, Diwani wa kata ya Kagongwa Bw. Ismail Masolwa pamoja na viongozi wengine wa kata hiyo.

 

Akizungumza katika hafla ya kukabidhi bodaboda hizo, Meneja wa Benki hiyo tawi la Kagongwa Bw. Prosper Meela alisema kuwa mikopo hii ni mahususi kwa ajili ya makundi mbalimbali ya kijamii ambayo katika masuala ya mikopo huwa yanashindwa kukidhi vigezo na masharti ya kukopesheka, makundi hayo ni kama vile akinamama, vijana, walemavu na makundi maalum. “Kupitia mikopo hii ya Jikwamue, mkopaji atajipatia mkopo bila kuweka dhamana yoyote, atahitaji tu kudhaminiwa na wanakikundi wenzake na kikundi kinaweza kukopeshwa hadi kufikia Shilingi milioni 30 wakati mwanakikundi mmoja anaweza kukopeshwa hadi kufikia Shilingi milioni 3, hivyo walengwa watahitaji kuunda kikundi cha wanachama wasiopungua watano hadi 10 ili kuweza kupata mkopo huu” aliongeza Meela huku akiwaasa wakazi wa eneo hilo kuchangamkia fursa hiyo adimu.

 

Kwa upande wake mbunge wa jimbo la Msalala Mh.Iddy Hamis Iddy aliishukuru Benki ya Azania kwa kutoa mikopo ya aina hiyo ambayo inawasaidia makundi ya vijana ambao wana hamu ya kushiriki katika ujenzi wa taifa lao na kuiomba Benki hiyo iendelee kutoa huduma zenye tija kama hii ya mikopo ya Jikwamue. “Katika kuunga mkono kwa vitendo sera ya Mh Rais John Pombe Magufuli ya kuifanya Tanzania kuwa nchi ya uchumi wa kati, ni lazima kuwa na mbinu za kuweza kuwaongezea wajasiliamali na wafanyabiashara wadogo kipato kupitia mashirikiano na Benki zenye misingi imara kama Benki ya Azania ambayo imeonesha ipo tayari kushirikiana na wananchi na serikali katika kufanikisha hilo,’’ alimalizia mbunge huyo.

 

Naye mkuu wa kituo cha polisi Kagongwa Oswald Nyarobi aliwaasa waendesha bodaboda ambao wamekabidhiwa pikipiki hizo kuwa makini na kutumia pikipiki hizo kwa matumizi yaliyokusudiwa huku wakifuata sheria za matumizi ya vyombo vya moto.

 

Mikopo hii ya Jikwamue ilizinduliwa mwanzoni mwa mwaka jana ikiwa ni muendelezo wa mkakati wa Benki hiyo katika kuwainua kiuchumi wajasiliamali wadogo sambamba na kuunga mkono jitihada za serikali ya Mh. Rais John Pombe Magufuli kuinua kipato cha mwananchi kupitia ujasiriamali na biashara ndogondogo.

BENKI YA AZANIA NA DSE WAUNGANA KUWAINUA VIJANA .

Benki ya Azania kwa kushirikiana na taasisi ya soko la hisa la Dar es salaam (DSE) hapo jana wamezindua shindano ambalo litawaongezea vijana uelewa katika masuala ya fedha. Hafla ya uzinduzi wa shindano hilo linalioitwa DSE-Scholar Investment Challenge (DSE-SIC) imefanyika katika ukumbi wa hoteli ya Hyatt Regency jijini Dar es salaam.

 

Akizungumza katika hafla ya uzinduzi huo, mwanasheria mkuu wa taasisi ya DSE Mary Mniwasa alisema kuwa shindano hili limekuwa likiendeshwa na taasisi hiyo kila mwaka toka mwaka 2014.”Tumekuwa tukifanya shindano hili kwa muda sasa na limekuwa likileta mafanikio siku hadi siku. Ni shindano ambalo linawakutanisha vijana hasa wasomi kwa nia ya kuwajengea uwezo wa masuala ya kifedha na uwekezaji, na pia kuwapa utayari wa kuingia katika soko la ajira nchini.”

 

“Shindano hili la DSE-SIC ni mahususi kwa ajili ya wanafunzi kuanzia elimu ya sekondari na wanavyuo. Pamoja na kuwajengea uwezo katika masuala ya kifedha lakini pia kupitia shindano hili pia vijana hawa watajijengea uwezo wa kufanya maamuzi pindi wanapokutana na changamoto zinazohusiana na masuala ya fedha, hisa na kujiwekea akiba”.


“Pamoja na ujuzi huo watakaoupata lakini pia shindano hili litaambatana na zawadi nono ambayo ni fedha taslimu kwa mshindi wwa kwanza,wa pili na wa tatu, hivyo niwaombe wanafunzi wa sekondari hadi vyuo kushiriki ili kufaidika na yale ambayo shindano hili limeyalenga”, alieleza Mniwasa.


Kwa upande wa Benki ya Azania ambao ni wadhamini wakuu wa shindano hilo, Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Benki hiyo Charles Itembe alisema kuwa Benki ya Azania inalitazama shindano hili kama moja ya fursa kwa vijana, hasa wanafunzi wa elimu ya juu kuweza kuongeza uelewa katika masuala ya fedha, masoko ya fedha na namna masoko hayo yanavyofanya kazi kwa kuwa mchakato huu unahusisha kutoa elimu kuhusu masuala hayo”.

 

“Benki ya Azania inaona hii kuwa ni fursa ya kushiriki katika kuunganisha baina ya vijana na soko la ajira nchini, huku mantiki kubwa ikiwa ni kuinua kiwango cha elimu kwa vijana wa kitanzania na kuwajengea utayari wa kuajiriwa wakiwa na weledi wa kutosha. Hii ni moja ya mambo makuu yaliyomo katika sera yetu ya kusaidia jamii (CSR Policy). Sera yetu ya kusaidia jamii imejielekeza katika mambo makuu manne ambayo ni kusaidia jamii katika mambo ya elimu na uelewa kuhusu mambo ya fedha, kusaidia vijana na mambo yanayowaendeleza vijana kwa ujumla,kusaidia jamii katika sekta ya Afya na kusaidia miradi inayofanya tafiti mbalimbali zenye manufaa kwa jamii. Hivyo mtaona kwamba shindano hili linagusa moja kwa moja sera yetu katika maeneo makuu mawili kama yanavyojieleza hapo juu ambayo ni kusaidia jamii katika mambo ya elimu na uelewa kuhusu mambo ya fedha na kusaidia vijana na mambo yanayowaendeleza vijana kwa ujumla.”

 

“Kwa hiyo tuna kila sababu ya kuwaunga mkono wenzetu wa DSE, ambao pia tumekuwa tukishirikiana nao katika mambo mbalimbali katika ujenzi wa taifa letu. Lakini pia tusisahau pia kuwa eneo la elimu ya mambo ya fedha na masoko ya fedha na mitaji ni maeneo ambayo serikali yetu imekuwa ikiwekea mkazo sana kwa kuwa yana mguso wa moja kwa moja katika kukuza uchumi, hivyo sisi kama taasisi ya fedha tunalo jukumu la kuiongezea nguvu serikali ili sote kwa pamoja tuchangie katika kukuza uchumi wa nchi yetu” alimalizia Itembe.

 

Akieleza jinsi ya kushiriki, Mniwasa alisema kuwa jinsi ya kushiriki ni rahisi sana, “kwanza utapaswa kupakua App inayoitwa DSE-SIC (inayopatikana kwenye simu zote za mfumo wa Android) na kujisajili.kwa kuweka taarifa zako muhimu ikiwemo majina yako, namba zako za simu, barua pepe yako nk. Kila mshiriki atapewa mfano wa fedha TZS 3,000,000 kama mtaji wa kuanzia na kuonesha ni jinsi gani ataweza kuziwekeza na kuzizalisha na kwa njia mbalilmbali kama vile kushiriki katika manunuzi na mauzo ya hisa nk kwa vitendo. Hatimaye mshiriki ambae ataweza kuzalisha Zaidi ndiye atakayekuwa mshindi. Shindano linatarajia kufikia tamati mwisho wa mwezi wa Desemba 2020” alimalizia Mniwasa.

STAND UP FOR AFRICAN MOTHERS (SU4AM) CHARITY WALK .


PRESS RELEASE

Azania Bank partners with Amref to support the Walk for the ‘Stand Up for African Mothers’ initiative

 

Dar-es-salaam, June 29th 2019: Azania Bank (ABL) has today sponsored a walk for a fundraiser to support the ‘Stand Up for African Mothers (SU4AM)’ initiative, a campaign by Amref (The African Medical and Research Foundation), that aims to raise awareness on the plight of African mothers and to mobilize citizens worldwide to ensure that mothers get the basic medical care they need during pregnancy and childbirth.

Bearing the theme: Support Deployment of Nurse Midwives for Safe Delivery, the ‘SU4AM Charity Walk’, was held at the Green Grounds, Oysterbay in Dar es Salaam and officiated by the Vice-President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Mama Samia Suluhu Hassan.

Speaking at the event, ABL Managing Director, Charles Itembe underpinned the bank’s commitment to supporting the health sector, particularly citing maternal health as one of the core pillars of ABL’s corporate social responsibility policy.

“African women are at the centre of the social and economic development chain”, said Itembe, noting that without basic medical care, women in developing countries such as Tanzania, will experience high maternal mortality rate that would lead to retardation of social and economic development.

Itembe added that ABL recognized the need to support other stakeholders like Amref, with a view to contributing towards positive transformation of life in such areas as health, education and economic wellbeing.

ABL’s sponsorship included cash and kind donations to deploy a number of students in health centres.

According to Amref, over 200,000 African mothers die every year due to lack of simple medical care. Moreover, 40% of African women do not receive pre-natal care, with more than half of them having deliveries done at home. Conversely, 1.5 million African children are left motherless each year due to the high maternal mortality rate.

The Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey (TDHS-2012) on the other hand, recorded 432 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births and again 556 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2016-which means that nearly 30 Tanzanian mothers die daily from pregnancy-related complications.

By supporting Amref’s noble programme, Itembe said, ABL seeks to contribute to a considerable extent in reducing maternal mortality rate in Tanzania-and to buttress Amref’s rallying call: ‘Rise and take a stand for African Mothers’.
