dc.description This study has aimed at assessing the contribution of women cooperative groups to poverty eradication in Zanzibar. Fuoni constituency was taken as a case study. The study comprised of one hundred and four respondents from the population of 15400. Data were collected through questionnaires and interviews and analyzed, using Statistical Package for Sciences (SPSS) version. The study revealed that, women cooperative groups contributed much to employment creation, improving living standards, increasing relationship among people, improve creativity, and so on. Apart from that, women cooperative groups faced many obstacles such as poor government support, poor technology, lack of adequate area for production, lack of capital, and insufficient equipments. The study recommends that, in order to ensure there was efficiency and sufficiency in the development of women cooperative groups, there was a need to improve the relationship between cooperatives and the government by creating strategic plans of assisting women, such as a provision of capital, working area, technical assistance and work equipments. The government should also implement cooperative policy and ensure the use of simple accessible technology.
