IFC Launches Women’s Economic Empowerment Program in Tanzania

This week, IFC launched Anaweza: She Can, a wide-ranging program to empower more women across Tanzania's economy to access financing, attain leadership positions in the private sector, and launch or grow businesses, including in agriculture.

The five-year, $10 million advisory program has three objectives:

  1. To enhance women's employment and access to corporate leadership.
  2. To increase access to financial and non-financial services for women and women-owned small business.
  3. To boost access of women-led businesses to productive assets and markets in key sectors such as agribusiness, manufacturing, digital services, and tourism.
