Currently, Tanzania's Agricultural Development Bank offers loans to groups already having land and engaging in agricultural activities. Thus, we advise people who are interested in economic development through agricultural activities work hard to find and own suitable areas for the relevant activities.

Tanzania Agricultural Development Bank Tanzania is a Financial Development Institution (DFI) which is not mandated to undergo retail operation like deposit, withdraw and other like transaction. TADB customers receive service in their own commercial banks in which TADB cooperate with.

The Tanzania Agricultural Development Bank issues loan based on the actual requirements of the project based on the Application and Business Plan submitted by the respective client. Thus, the amount of the loan will depend on the detailed analysis of the loan applications and the ability to repay, hence no specified minimum loan maintained to farmers application.
