Abstract

Today one of the most compelling challenges facing our country is promoting women business entrepreneurs. The overall aim of this study is to assess the role of WEDTF in promoting women business growth in Zanzibar, a case study of Women Entrepreneurship Development Trust Fund (WEDTF), a microfinance institution in Zanzibar. The methodology of the study was a mixed approach involving both qualitative and quantitative approach in analysis. The application of semi-structured interview technique with WEDTF clients and interview guides with managers was a major means in collecting data that yields the results of this research. The results have been analyzed using matching pattern so as to compare information obtained from the case study with the theoretical framework to see whether it is the same as was predicted in the theoretical framework or not. Findings reveal that majority of women clients reported an increase in their incomes which is an indication of positive impact of WEDTF over women business. Keywords: Role of WEDF, Business growth, Zanzibar
