  9. 9. Enterprise Works an NGO working to improve food production… (irrigation) (started 2008) • $500,000 has been spent to date. • Small low cost pumps are being provided and a company is being taught how to produce them. • Output has increased in the area by 22% and in the dry season farmers are earning twice the price for their crop. How does irrigation help the farmers improve production? What wider impacts will this have on development?
  10. 10. NGOs providing micro-loan (enterprise) schemes to improve small businesses. NGOs e.g. Finc Tanzania are offering people the chance to borrow a small amount of money with only minimal interest rates to start a business.) • These Village Banks loans are mostly to rural women. • They must save a small % of the money needed themselves, then the money they pay back is used for other loans. • Businesses that have started include: Shop owners, hair dressers, furniture makers, selling handi-crafts, growing mushrooms… Why target women?
  11. 11. This small shop started with a micro enterprise loan. It means that Mama Sania does not have to rely on her crops for income. How does providing cheap loans to small businesses help reduce the disparities within Tanzania? What indicators will it effect?
