JAMII IMPACT provides financial and non-financial services to Micro-, Small-, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), as well as smallholder farmers in Tanzania who are financially excluded from the formal banking sector. Hence, JAMII IMPACT grants credit facilities to qualified and eligible Community Microfinance Groups (CMGs) in Tanzania that commit to serve active individuals with low net income from the MSME- and smallholder farming sector. There are various forms of CMGs:
- Village Community Banks (VICOBA)
- Rotating Savings and Credit Associations (ROSCAs)
- Accumulated Savings and Credit Associations (ASCAs)
- Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs)
- Savings and Credit Associations (SACAS)
As directed by the 2019 Tanzania Microfinance Regulation Act, JAMII IMPACT also provides technical training in areas of financial education, business management and other advisory services to its partner CMGs. The aim is to strengthen their capacity as a way to enable them to improve their economic activities, achieve better results for themselves and hence also mitigate financial and operational risks for JAMII IMPACT.
