Wezeshwa na Safari Lager

Wezeshwa na Safari Lager is a program of Tanzania Breweries Limited through its Safari Brand. The program aimed at providing business development and expansion support to existing entrepreneurs by giving grants worth 200,000,000Tshs. 9738 applicants participated, 80 participants were pre-selected and finally 54 participants were taken through a thorough business expansion training conducted in four regions of Dar es salaam, Mwanza, Mbeya and Arusha simultaneously. TAPBDS Co.Ltd began its involvement from the Sifting stage, Validation stage and the Training stage. The program aimed at enabling the entrepreneurs to be able to employ more, increase their profit margin and extend the benefits of their business to the society.
