|This master thesis studies the impact of providing business training to microfinance clients in
Tanzania. Based on data collected six months after the programme ended, we cannot confirm
positive treatment effects from business training on the micro entrepreneurs’ profits.
However, treated entrepreneurs have higher likelihood of operating multiple businesses;
increased their engagement within commerce and reduced their engagement within
manufacturing. Based on the market situation at the time, these changes all represent
advancement towards business structures associated with higher profitability. Moreover,
findings of low profitability in new establishments can serve as an explanation to the small
effect from business training on profits, and imply that treatment effects will be manifested in
higher future profits of the entrepreneurs.
