Opportunity Tanzania is Committed to Expanding Outreach
By Ally Lynch - Campaign Specialist
Opportunity Tanzania is always looking for way to help our clients improve their businesses and generate more income for their families. Recently, Opportunity Malawi’s transformation officer helped Opportunity Tanzania conduct a survey of clients in its Arusha and Moshi branches to determine the needs of those we seek to serve.
What did we learn? Among the many important findings we learned that Opportunity Tanzania’s clients are among those who live below the poverty line, and are not always able to afford enough food for the family…
47% have 3 meals per day
32% have 2 meals per day
21% have 1 meal per day

80% feel their lives have improved greatly
7% feel their lives have improved moderately
13% feel they are still struggling
Opportunity Tanzania is committed to meeting its goals of expanding outreach and increase access to financial services for the most impoverished families in the country. It’s possible through the partnership of Opportunity International contributors like the ones we have met on Global Giving.
