– empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.
SNV is implementing a two-year project called Transforming Agricultural Markets (TAM), which started in August 2018, and funded by UKAID. The TAM project aims to improve livelihoods and economic opportunity for smallholder farmers by empowering them to effect changes in the dairy and sunflower market systems through engaging with government and private sector providers.
The TAM project Theory of Change is that by working with citizens, private sector and government at sub- national level on specific, actor-led systems issues to produce data and facilitate stakeholder analysis the project can broaden understanding, build consensus, and strengthen accountability relationships for collective action to: i) make existing policies work at the local level, and to ii) provide documented evidence for national level policy dialogue and reforms. The project aims at achieving the following impact and outcomes:
Impact: Improved livelihoods of SHFs and SMEs in the dairy and sunflower market systems
Long term outcome: Increased access and inclusiveness to basic services (production, financial, capacity services) and strengthened business environment for SHFs and agribusinesses in dairy and sunflower market systems.

The targeted areas for increased responsiveness and accountability relations are, functioning cooperatives and harmonisation of regulations in the dairy market system; and contract farming and women access to finance from local government authorities (LGAs) in the sunflower market system.

2.0 Background to the Assignment
The government of the United Republic of Tanzania through the Ministry of Community Development, Women Affairs and Children developed and approved the “Policy on Women in Development in Tanzania” in March 2019. The policy provides a framework to address key challenges hindering women in development initiatives including access to finance
The Policy led to the establishment of Women and Youth Development Fund – a Revolving Fund and during the financial year 2018/19 (FY 2018/19), the parliament amended the Local Government Finances Act # 9 of 1982 through Finance Act of 2018 by inserting section 37A in which the Revolving Fund and the law became effective from July 1st 2018. The amendments to the Local Government Finances Act were followed by The Regulation for Issuance and Governance of Group Loans to Women, Youth and People with Disabilities at LGAs which sets the conditions and requirements for accessing loans from LGAs by the target groups.

TAM Project has been facilitating women SMEs to form and register groups at LGA level in order to access funding from the LGAs in Mbeya, Songwe, Rukwa and Katavi regions. During implementation of the women access to finance interventions, through the revolving fund, several governance problems were raised by stakeholders. Some of the issues includes; lacking transparency, inadequate availability of information on procedures and requirements to the target beneficiaries, low levels of sensitization by government officials on the fund activities, fear of penalty for failures to repay loans, and long bureaucratic procedures. The TAM project has facilitated and built the capacity of involved stakeholders to collaborate in addressing the issues in issuance of loans from LGAs to women in order to make The Local Government Finances Act and Regulation for Issuance and Governance of Group Loans to Women, Youth and People with Disabilities from LGAs work for women SMEs in sunflower market system. It is therefore against this background that SNV is seeking the services of an individual consultant to carry out a participatory review of the Regulation (Regulation for Issuance and Governance of Group Loans to Women, Youth and People with Disabilities from LGAs), prepare and develop the User-Friendly Guidelines for Women Access to Finance at LGAs, and use as a case from Mbeya, Songwe, Rukwa and Katavi regions, develop a Policy Brief for national level advocacy for women Access to Finance from LGAs.
