MCC | Compact II


The United States Department of State announced up to $200 million in expected renewed and enhanced support by the United States for the clean cooking sector and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. This will help improve health, reduce environmental degradation, mitigate climate change, and generate economic empowerment and opportunity for women and girls (U.S. Department of State, Fact Sheet, November 21, 2014).

​GSLA and VETA has a signed Memorandum of Understanding to support Clean Cooking and Ethanol Production. GSLA will distribute clean cookstoves along with ethanol to 700 villages in Tanzania. GSLA will provide training and education for the use and maintenance of clean cookstoves. Initial efforts will be two pilot programs, one in Tanga and one in Bagamoyo. GSLA expects to become a distributor for clean cookstoves and ultimately become a manufacture of clean cookstoves through joint venture relationship to facilitate market acceptance, affordability, and broad-base utilization. This effort will create thousands of jobs, reduce deforestation, empower women, and create a clean air climate within homes and businesses.​ Our concept note on Clean Cooking is available upon request.

Global Alliance for Clean Cooking​​

​​From concept to completion, GSLA and Vocational, Education, Training and Authority (VETA) will implement a technology advance enhancement to their existing education and training program. This enhancement is designed to impact individuals and businesses, and is consistence with the Country Strategy Paper, 2011-2015, and the Bank Group Regional Integration Policy and Strategy, 2014-2023, developed by the African Development Bank/Fund and the African Development Bank Group. 

We have a Memorandum of Understanding and Proposal supporting The World Bank objectives and the proposal is available upon request. Email: Jimmy Harris;

In 2011, the United Republic of Tanzania was selected as one of four
U.S. Government Partnership for Growth countries. This designation
focuses support and private sector engagement efforts from across
the U.S. Government on key growth constraints. One year later in
December 2012, MCC selected Tanzania as eligible to develop a compact.
The Government of Tanzania (GoT) and MCC are now in the process
of developing a compact focused on one of these key constraints,
the limited availability of reliable and affordable electric power.

​​Why Invest in Tanzania?
Tanzania, with its large and growing domestic population, strategic location, abundance of natural resources, and internal political stability, offers long-term investment opportunity.
Tanzania has a relatively young population of roughly 49 million people, making it one of the largest
countries, by population, in East Africa.
Tanzania, which borders the Indian Ocean, is a natural trading gateway for five countries surrounding
it—Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Zambia.
The country has vast natural riches: minerals in the form of gold, diamonds, copper, coal; recent large
discoveries of natural gas both onshore and within its territorial waters; and diverse wildlife and vast
tracts of beautiful natural scenery, including national parks and sandy beaches.
The country has enjoyed long periods of political stability. Since the 1964 union of Tanganyika and
Zanzibar, the country has been relatively peaceful, and its political leaders have all come to power
through an electoral process.
 Economic growth in Tanzania has averaged 6.9 percent over the last decade, and increased investment
in power and other critical infrastructure will help Tanzania continue on this trajectory.

Katani Limited (Ltd.) is a privately owned Tanzanian company with its head office at Katani House located in Tanga City, Tanga Region in Tanzania, East Africa. Katani operates Sisal decortication factories in five estates:  Hale, Mwelya, Ngombezi, Magoma and Magunga Estate all located in the Korogwe District of Tanga Region.

​​Sisal Waste to Energy

Tanzania is the second largest sisal producing country in the world and Katani is the leading manufacturer of sisal products in Tanzania. Mwelya Estate has a total land holding of 2,398 hectares and 306 smallholder and outgrower contract farmers growing sisal.  It has two sections of Mwelya and Usambara. Magoma Estate has a total land holding of 2,270 hectares and 158 individual smallholder and outgrower contract farmers growing sisal.The waste consists of a high percentage of organic matter and is relatively easy to digest. The optimal biological way to treat these wastes is an anaerobic digestion process. Anaerobic digestion of this waste represents an alternative treatment to conventional methods of disposal. During the digestion process biogas and liquid residues are produced. Biogas can be used to generate electricity and heat power. The liquid residues can be used as high quality bio-fertilizer for commercial farming.
