Donor Impact Report - SSBVC
Tanzania is experiencing steady economic growth, but many small business entrepreneurs are not well positioned to benefit. The obstacles they face include lack of business management training, limited access to production technology, access to financing, and limited market access and awareness. MEDA’s Strengthening Small Business Value Chains (SSBVC) is a six-year project working to strengthen value chains in specific sectors of Tanzania. Using a “lead firm” approach, MEDA equips businesses to develop their supply chains while engaging, training, and nurturing small entrepreneurs and supplying them with consistent, high quality crops.
