1.3 Methodology: Support for Growth-oriented Women Entrepreneurs in Tanzania, 2005



Preparation for the mission involved a preliminary review of relevant research and
documentation on the state of economic development in Tanzania, the general
environment for SME development, the status of women entrepreneurs in the economy,
and barriers to their growth and development. Over a nine-day period, meetings were
held with 26 key informants, both in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar. These included
interviews and discussions with representatives from the ILO Office in Dar es Salaam,
the MIT-SME Section (Dar es Salaam), the Ministry of Trade, Industry, Marketing and
Tourism in Zanzibar, other government agencies, microfinance institutions (MFIs),
associations of women entrepreneurs and their members, universities, banks, and donors
(see Annex 2 for the list of contacts).

Additional reports, studies and programme information were obtained from several
informants. Together with insights gained from the range of interviews and meetings, a basis was formed for assessing and analysing the policy and programme support for the
development of women entrepreneurs in Tanzania, with a particular focus on supporting
growth. The overall findings and recommendations for further actions in each of the
areas of the Stevenson and St-Onge (2001) integrated framework (see Figure 1) are
presented in this report.

As the world's only tripartite multilateral agency, the ILO is dedicated to bringing decent work and livelihoods, job-related security and better living standards to the people of both poor and rich countries. It helps to attain those goals by promoting rights at work, encouraging opportunities for decent employment, enhancing social protection and strengthening dialogue on work-related issues. The ILO is the international meeting place for the world of work. We are the experts on work and employment and particularly on the critical role that these issues play in bringing about economic development and progress. At the heart of our mission is helping countries build the institutions that are the bulwarks of democracy and to help them become accountable to the people. The ILO formulates international labour standards in the form of Conventions and Recommendations setting minimum standards of basic labour rights: freedom of association, the right to organize, collective bargaining, abolition of forced labour, equality of opportunity and treatment and other standards addressing conditions across the entire spectrum of work-related issues.
