Data collected was analyzed qualitatively by making use of content analysis and were presented by using percentages and figures. Results of the study show that SACCOs have notable contribution to women in Tanga City Council. Through loans offered by SACCOs women in SACCOs are in good position to bring about their development and ultimately eradicate poverty. Women who are board members are involved in decision making thus creating opportunity for women to grow in terms of leadership.
