Abstract

This study was carried at Nguzonane area within Kambarage ward in Shinyanga Municipality. The first chapter is about participatory needs assessment whereby needs of the businessmen and women of Nguzonane area were assessed and identified, findings revealed that they are aware of their obstacles to making profitable business and have come up with a strategy of resolving the situation. Implementation of the project through awareness creation on proper use of areas reserved for business operation was done cooperatively with the Vijana Green Group. Through sensitization meetings held, involvement of stakeholders right from the beginning of the project was active and participatory. Project sustainability is ensured by project being originated from beneficiaries themselves and the use of existing formal structures whose goals are to improve lives of Shinyanga Municipal Council residents. Also, political environment is made conducive through involving all the influential political leaders; the councilors. Recommendations are made that through using similar approach, similar projects should be done in some other areas of the country so that business reserved areas are used as required. Policy markers and law enforcers to adhere to the laws and by-laws available so that things such as doing business in prohibited areas should not be done.
