About the Organisation

Established in 2004, the Financial Sector Deepening Tanzania (FSDT) is a donor-funded financial sector market facilitator that aims to achieve poverty reduction through a transformative financial sector that offers inclusive and sustainable financial solutions to improve the livelihood, wellbeing, and empowerment of underserved Tanzanians.

Through FSDT facilitation, we hope to achieve the following changes in the market:

  • Improved policies, legal and regulatory frameworks that promote gender equality, as well as economic and financial opportunities for women and youth.
  • Improved availability of relevant financial sector infrastructures that will equip the financial sector players and other stakeholders with the ability to meet the needs and aspirations of women and youth.
  • Financial service providers developing and scaling innovative and responsive financial solutions/tools for women and youth to promote equality, empowerment, and wellbeing.
  • Improved confidence and capability of women and youth to demand and use financial solutions.
