This report presents a mid-term evaluation of the Strategic Plan 2016–2020 of the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (FSDT) Tanzania. The evaluation assesses the relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability of FSDT’s operations, and is expected to contribute to learning and serve as an input to FSDT’s next Strategic Plan. A light benchmarking was done with the Financial Sector Deepening Kenya (FSDK) and Access to Finance Rwanda (AFR). The evaluation found that FSDT’s Strategy has been largely relevant to national priorities and partners’ needs and that it has contributed to key policies and regulations, strengthened market infrastructure, and the development of new products and services. The needs of women and youth, however, have not been addressed properly, and more attention should be given to monitoring, learning, and ensuring value for money. It was moreover found that ensuring sustainability is a key challenge for FSDT, both in terms of programming and the viability of the FSDT itself. The evaluation ends with several recommendations to Sida, other donors and FSDT for the coming strategy period.
