Packed in a small video banda in Kigoma, Ezera was watching a movie during a free screening when suddenly the movie cut and an ad on saving popped up. “I used to save by putting money in a kibubu, but after watching that video I will consider using a VICOBA,” she says. Such was the goal of our financial literacy project in Kigoma – to encourage the adoption of positive, and more diverse, financial behaviours in Kigoma Region.
