Business enhancement to the woman saving group in Central and South Districts of Zanzibar

In 2020, REZA in partnership with a Charitable Organization from Germany, URBIS Foundation, has successful implemented the project that is aiming at increasing income to the women saving groups through selling renewable energy products.

REZA was successfully recruiting 8 women saving groups from the South regions of Unguja Island after training them about how to start investment on renewable energy products, this training held since 2018/2019 that was sponsored by URBIS foundation too.

This year’s project 2020 aims to support those groups by providing them with small capital to start business. This business had engaged in selling small solar systems fitted to switch 5 lamps and charging mobile phones. REZA gives technical support during the project time.

REZA also provided working tools to these groups for managing installation activities in order they can ensure good service to the people. Woman saving groups starting practically benefited through this project by increasing the number of distributions up to 128 small solar systems in the month of  August 2020. Good news to see this project is functioning and  seems to develop itself very quickly right now, we hope that the project will inspire more women in the country by 2021.
