Abstract

This study examined the implementation livelihood enhancement through saving component in South District Unguja. The survey questionnaire was distributed to the TASAF beneficiaries with sample size of 307 and data were collected and analysed based on correlation techniques using SPSS 23.0 software. The nature of this study is quantitative where it showed the relationship between two latent variables. The results showed that there is a positive correlation between saving components and livelihood enhancement. This means that the Person’s correlation between saving component and livelihood enhancement of beneficiaries of TASAF III Unguja South District is 0.465, p < 0.01; two tailed. In addition, saving component is moderate correlated where the increase of score in one variable, it also leads to the increase of the score in the other variable (0.465, p < 0.01). This result indicates that saving component is useful in enhancing the livelihood of beneficiaries of TASSAF II. It is concluded that saving components improve livelihood enhancement of the poor in Zanzibar. The paper recommended that, an impact evaluation has to be undertaken to provide better evidence and to remove all the observed challenges in the implementation of Livelihood Enhancement Component including lack of tools kits for some of villages (Shehia) like a safe box and book records.
