TIB Development Bank (TIB), Tanzania

TIB was established in November 1970 initially by the Parliamentary Act, the Tanzania Investment Bank Act of 1970 with the main purpose of financing development with emphasis on industrialisation of the country. TIB was able to fulfil its mandate with notable success in the setting up of textile, leather, paper and other processing industries until the macroeconomic instabilities of the 1980s when the country’s economy deteriorated.


The economic reforms of the 1990s highlighted the lack of long term funding as it was not offered by any of the commercial and financial institutions operating the country at the time.  The Government therefore re-designated TIB as a Development Finance Institution (DFI) in 2005.
