Many people living in rural areas of Tanzania are unable to obtain even small amounts of money in the form of bank loans due to the lack of collateral. This is one of the greatest obstacles to development in the region. So-called "Village Community Banks" (short "VICOBAs"), are committed to helping these people to achieve greater financial stability and economic independence by managing available funds within a group or village community themselves and distributing them as microcredits.
Each group consists of 25 to 30 members who live in the same village or district. Membership is not limited to women, but around 95 percent of the members in the Kilimanjaro region are women.
