Research project In this project, we will investigate what kinds of support young people in Tanzania need in order to secure their livelihood as self-employed. Micro-finance services to youth is one of the focus of the study.
Many young people in East Africa make their living within the informal sector. Because the employment opportunities are few, they are expected to create their own employment. However, there is very little support available in order to do so, which puts young people in a very vulnerable situation. The aim of this study is to investigate what kinds of support young people in Tanzania need in order to secure tehir living as self-employed. Micro-finance services is one of the aspects in focus.
