The study looked at the impact of Intellectual stimulation, Idealised influence (charisma), Individualised consideration and Inspirational motivation on village loan organisations' performance. The data were gathered using a positivist design and a quantitative technique. A simple random selection approach was used to collect primary data from 100 respondents via questionnaires. The Cronbach's Alpha was adopted during the assessment of reliability. Descriptive and inferential statistics were preferably used during the analysis of the collected data. The study found that idealised influence is widely used in associations and has a positive impact on the performance of village loan associations. The findings reveal that, to a large extent, intellectual stimulation is practiced in the association, with leaders challenging VLA members to think creatively, encouraging them to express themselves creatively, taking risks, and supporting them in all activities in order to achieve the association's goals. The findings, inspirational motivation in associations has a positive impact on performance. Leaders employ incentives to entice VLA members to engage in accomplishing their vision by persuading them. Individualized consideration in the associations provides sufficient rationale for VLA performance since VLA leaders sympathize with VLA members' needs, provide a favourable environment, and function as a mentor. According to the study, the Tanzanian government should change and design new leadership policies for VLA to make them embrace transformational leadership for improved performance and development.
