Since our launch in Tanzania in 2006, BRAC has become a major development organisation and provider of microfinance in the East African nation of 42 million people. We now operate 112 branches in 48 districts with nearly 145,000 microfinance members. This past year, we disbursed over USD 31 million in loans to poor women and men. BRAC takes an integrated approach to helping people rise out of poverty and realise their potential. We provide support services in agriculture, livestock and poultry, health and adolescent development. BRAC’s programmes are bolstered by rigorous research, monitoring and auditing. To build capacity we comprehensively train our members and staff. At the end of 2010 we employed 1,153 Tanzanians, many of whom were promoted within the organisation.
