By Kizito Makoye KIKWEMBE, Tanzania (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - - Tatu Mtulya looks older than her age. Mtulya spent her grant of 355,000 Tanzanian shillings ($160) to set up a small cafeteria selling homemade dishes of rice, meat, chicken and the local staple ugali so that she could earn a regular income.     "Through my business I get a good income to help me pay for what my children need," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.     "On a good day I could get up to 30,000 Tanzanian shillings ($140 in profit a day."     While she has now has a modicum of financial security, Mtulya, whose husband left her years ago, is still in her two-roomed shack that's prone to flooding. Chicken droppings litter the floor and a hungry cat meows from afar.     More than 6,000 families in Muheza - at the foot of northern Tanzania's Usambara Mountains - have received financial support to improve their livelihoods under the conditional cash transfer initiative run by Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF).

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond walks to a meeting during the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors conference held in Chengdu in Southwestern China's Sichuan provinceBritain's new finance minister Philip Hammond sought to address concerns among global finance chiefs about the uncertain path ahead for the country's exit from the European Union, saying there could be more clarity later this year. "We have to be ready as government, the Bank of England has to be ready as monetary authority, throughout that period to respond to any instability created by that uncertainty and to ensure that the economy continues to operate smoothly," he said. Hammond, speaking after his first meeting with his fellow global finance chiefs from the Group of 20 economies, said concern about the shock result of Britain's EU membership referendum had increased uncertainty about the global economy.
