Who we are
The Tanzania Local Enterprise Development (T-LED) project supports local small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) to overcome existing barriers, with particular attention paid to the additional challenges faced by female-headed SMEs, in accessing growth markets in the associated value-chains of the agribusiness and extractive sectors, while enhancing the quality and coordination of market-driven business development services.
The project brings together the private sector, civil society and government to encourage a more equitable and market-driven distribution of resources.
