THE BANK OF TANZANIA WELCOMES YOU TO THE MICROFINANCE
The Bank of Tanzania, as the Government’s focal point in
microfinance, has the following responsibilities:
Develop a policy, legal and regulatory framework;
Guide the development of the sector;
Coordinate Government intervention and interface with other stakeholders in the field;
Monitor performance of the sector; and
Disseminate relevant information to the public.
The Bank has, therefore, established this sub-web, among its other tools, to keep the public informed of key developments and pertinent issues in the sector and to provide an important link to what is happening elsewhere in the field
at regional and international levels.
We encourage you to use the feedback
box to enable us serve you better.
Once again, we welcome you to use the sub-web.
Poverty is multi-dimensional. So no single intervention
can defeat poverty. However, access to financial services forms a fundamental
basis on which many of the other essential interventions depend. The poor, like
everyone else, need a variety of financial services, not just loans. When poor
people have access to financial services, they earn more, build their assets and
cushion themselves against external shocks. Poor households use such financing
to move away from everyday survival to planning the future-that is , investing
better in nutrition, health and education. The multiples roles of the financial
services to the poor parallel the multiple dimensions of the poverty captured in
the Millennium Development Goals.
