According to changes in CCM policy, the objective of Ujamaa in the nineteen nineties was to make sure that Tanzania citizens are possessing and running the country’s economy, through individuals, their cooperatives societies, private companies managed by themselves or by partnership and through public companies where many citizens will be buying shares and through those few companies which are still being run by the state. This objective demands many Tanzanians to have business skills. The study was contacted in Dodoma Municipality. The researchers selected the sample by stratification by taking 7 markets. A total of 171 clients were interviewed. Data were collected using interview and observation methods. Data collected were processed and analyzed by a statistical tool of data analysis (SPSS). Tanzania has a National Trade Policy of 2003 which categorizes business enterprises into four groups, namely, group A the micro, group B the small, group C the medium and group D the large entrepreneurs. The researchers intended to deal with group A because we doubted if group A, the micro entrepreneurs have the basic business skills. The study therefore intended to find out if the entrepreneurs of group A had the basic business skills. The research findings show that majority of micro entrepreneurs within Dodoma Municipality lack basic business skills. The study recommends that there is a need for Dodoma Municipal Council in collaboration with colleges offering training in business education within the Municipality to make training arrangement to micro entrepreneurs to enable them runs their business more successful.
