The denied access to title deed retards the economic development and environmental conservation of individual entrepreneurs since they can not access loan from the bank. The loan obtained would be used for agricultural activities like land preparation, buying seeds, pesticides and harvesting. The money can also be used for conservation of individual forests through planting more trees and security purpose.
Individual entrepreneurs complain a lot for the failure of the local government to process their title deeds in a timely manner. This is the case in Babati district specifically at Hala and Haraa villages.o not have title deeds for the land they own.
A title deed is useful for different benefits; access for loan from the bank, ensures legal transfer or division of land, strengthens the ownership of land and increases comfortability of a person towards owning a particular asset.
Therefore, I call upon the attention of the local government and any other responsible institution towards individual conservationists and entrepreneurs. Supporting them to secure title deeds so as to motivate them to put much effort towards conservation activities
