About Us

Tariro pronounced [tar-i-ro] is an African Shona term meaning "Hope" 

Tariro is built on the  belief that investing in the capacity of women to access and use financial services will improve and sustain economic opportunities, reduce poverty, increase education opportunities for children, improve health outcomes and build economic resilient communities in a pandemic or not.

Tariro centers also provide safe and user-friendly services in basic healthcare for women and children; early learning and special education support for children under 60 months while their mothers are at work; financial services for women including bank accounts, enterprise loans and business support to increase productivity and household income; psycho-social support for girls and women to reduce gender based and domestic violence, in addition to social protection services through a solidarity network of women to women enterprises.
