“We can stand on our own and do something. We will just go straight. Go, go forward.”
Regina from Lusaka, Zambia
Regina is a remarkable woman. At her home in Zambia, she glows with a new life as she tells us “This group has really changed me. It is a group of solving problems.” Regina found herself asking, “What do I do? Should I also die?” when she lost everything she had held as security, including her husband who left her, leaving her alone with and six children and no source of income or support system. Then she began to hear of PCI’s WE groups, in which women of the community save finances together while learning to develop strong local businesses.
Now Regina is a leader in her community and a role model to other women in her group. She keeps her eyes on the road ahead instead of the tragedies that are behind her.
