Facts about Tanzania
Tanzania’s national economy has outperformed many of its neighbors through the recent global recession. Yet, the benefits of its strong economy have failed to reach the 28 percent living in poverty in the country. Most Tanzanians lack access to basic necessities like electricity and sanitation facilities.
Tanzania, along with much of Sub-Saharan Africa, is on the verge of a crisis. By 2035, the International Monetary Fund estimates the number of Africans joining the working age population will exceed the rest of the world combined. To fill this surge, 18 million new jobs will have to be created each year for the next 20 years across Sub-Saharan Africa. In the meantime, Tanzanians rely on the informal sector for a chance to earn a living.
When poor people have access to financial services, they can earn more, build their assets, create jobs, and cushion themselves against external shocks. Since 1998, FINCA International has been helping thousands of Tanzanians improve their lives. FINCA offers financial services, such as loans, savings and microinsurance throughout the country.
