Ally Jamal Singoi

Loan Officer

I was born in Mbeya, on the southern highlands of Tanzania. It’s the breadbasket of the country—we grow everything there! As such, I’ve always been interested in agriculture. After studying business in Tanzania, Kenya, and South Africa, I spent six years working in both microfinance and commercial banking, focusing on agribusiness finance in eastern and southern Africa. My work at Root Capital continues to challenge me; agricultural finance is a challenging sector, and I feel like I’m learning something new every day. As Root Capital’s loan officer for Tanzania, I hope to keep growing a healthy portfolio in the country and reaching more businesses in rural regions. Outside of the office, you can usually find me running or playing basketball.
