UNCDF has been present in Tanzania since 1982, promoting local economic development and financial inclusion, and enhancing local government alternative sources of funds to finance local infrastructure.

Today, UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development.

Additionally, UNCDF is implementing YouthStart, a global programme which aims to increase access to financial services for low-income youth by developing approaches to offer youth tailored financial and non-financial services.
