- Tanzania has been fighting for liberalization for market in the African countries for a number of years, and this has made Tanzania to have more than 1.7 million family businesses. In response to poverty reduction strategies in Tanzania, We argue in this paper that family business can play a crucial role in this matter at stake. While family businesses in Tanzania may have a little contribution in the global poverty, giving the fact that Tanzanians are culturally relational tie live alone other African countries, family business in Tanzania can play a pivotal role and become gateway towards reducing poverty-related issues. It can provide a platform that the rest of the African countries can come with alternative solutions to the battle against poverty meanwhile promote their autonomy. Family business may help to overcome poverty in a way that lives the room for poor people to make their choices and meet their needs without become dependent to donor countries.
