About Me

My name is Muzalema Mwanza, I am the last born in a family of four and I am married with one baby boy. I am a civil engineer by profession and my late father always encouraged me to chase my dreams.

As a new mother, I learned of the difficult requirements that rural Zambian clinics impose on expectant mothers to provide their own tools for giving birth such as a scalpel blade, sterile gloves, and birthing mat for delivery of their babies. I managed to buy the things they require and gave birth to a beautiful boy in 2016, after which i realized that for many months I had a hard time finding these products all in one place so I established Safe Motherhood Alliance, a social enterprise to package and distribute sterile materials for childbirth for pregnant women in low-income communitiesand rural areas.

My Business

We provide Baby Delivery Kits to pregnant women in low-income communities and rural areas to ensure and improve safe births by developing a simple, low-cost, disposable delivery kit for pregnant women that will be used during childbirth because everyday in Zambia, hundreds of mothers and babies die at childbirth because mothers have to provide their own birthing materials. But with the baby delivery kits, mothers can rest easy knowing their newborns will be free from using unsterilized,-materials.

Loan Proposal

With this loan we will ensure that we package more kits and health materials for pregnant women to keep them safe during this period when we are facing a national crisis with the pandemic. But we will work hard to serve our beneficaries.

Income Source

We will create more distribution networks so that we are able to serve more customers and beneficaries. By making sure that they are protected then we will fulfill our company vision to provide access to everyone.

    Repayments started strong, then shrank for several months before several large payments finished the loan off. This is an important, amazing and inspiring project that I am honoured to help with.
