Microfinance

In 2005, the Aga Khan Agency for Microfinance (AKAM) started microcredit operations in mainland Tanzania in the Mtwara and Lindi regions, which were classified as among the most marginalised areas of the country. The programme offers working capital loans for the establishment and expansion of micro and small retail and commercial enterprises in the urban centres and agriculture loans in the rural areas.
