Savings Groups promoted by UNCDF partner Good Neighbors Tanzania thrive in Kigoma
Now my family listens to me,” said Ekyoci, a 34year-old Congolese woman. “Every time when I have suggestions, like when to rebuild the house and how to spend our money, my husband listens to me. It was not the same in the past.” But Ekyoci has benefited recently from membership in a savings group promoted by UNCDF partner Good Neighbors Tanzania (GNTZ) and since she began, things have changed for the better for her and her household.
