Nilienda TIB wakasema hawana PESA za kukopesha kilimo, bado hela za EPA hawajapewaaaa
Kama wiki 2 zilizopeta nilienda TIB BENKI nikauliza mkopo kwa ajili ya mradi wa kilimo na ufugaji.
Niliwauliza kuhusu pesa walizopewa kwa ajili ya kukopesha wakulima na wafugaji, wakasema hawana habari kama hiyo.
Pia wakasema kama ni kukopesha ni wakulima wakubwa tu wenye mashamba makubwa kama heka 100 na zaidi.
Pia wanasema Riba ni kubwa, sasa sijui wakulima wadogo nao watafaidika na hiyo mikopo au ni matajiri tuuu?
Sasa nashangaa nimesoma kwenye gazeti kuwa wapeleka bilion 3 za EPA TIB, ni kiini macho, au nini?
Naomba kama kuna mtu anafahamiana na Mbunge waulize ni lini wataanza kutoa hiyo mikopo? Pia Mikopo ni kwa wakulima wakubwa tu au na wadogo watapata? Pia Riba ni nafuu au ni kama commercial bank nyingine kama NBC,CRDB,NMB,AKiba, ...??
Hizo habari za EPA kupelekwa TIB ni SIASA au ni Ukweli???
Wananchi ni lini watawezeshwa, tuachane na siasa za majukwaani?

THE Tanzania Investment Bank (TIB) needs about 150bn/- to enable it provide loans to farmers in the country, the Deputy Minister for Finance and Economic Affairs, Mr Jeremiah Sumari told the National Assembly here.
He was responding to a supplementary question from Dr Raphael Chegeni (Busega-CCM) who wanted to know whether the monies from EPA promised by the government had been submitted to TIB to be used in issuing loans to farmers. Mr Sumary said TIB needed big capital in order to be able to discharge its responsibilities competently.
He said, however, the government has given 53bn/- to TIB as a starting capital and the 3bn/- was allocated to the loans window. He explained that the government has already issued 1bn/- out of the 3bn/- from EPA funds to beef up TIB capital.
Meanwhile, the government has given some 35.5bn/- additional funds to TIB to enable it provide loans to farmers pending the establishment of Farmers Bank in the near future.
Mr Sumari told the National Assembly that TIB has also been given in 2008/2009 financial year some 1bn/- out of the 3bn/- from EPA funds to help in improving agriculture in the country. He said this in response to a question by Mossy Suleiman Mussa (Mfenesini-CCM) who wanted to know government plans to increase TIB capital from 3bn/- allocated in 2008/2009 this financial year.
The legislator noted that the government decided to provide loans to farmers through TIB. In a supplementary question the legislator noted that the Chinese government had promised to assist Tanzania in improving the agricultural sector by providing expertise and capital to start Farmers’ Bank.
She wanted to know government efforts in realizing the promise by the Chinese government. The Deputy Minister told the House that discussions with the Chinese government were in progress and plans to start Farmers Bank were in final stages.
