A Gift To Africa – wins as the Tampa Bay’s Downtown Partnership’s Representative to the Regions Bank Program that Connects Small Business to Capital

This past May, Marty Lanahan, West Florida area president for Regions Bank, spearheaded the bank’s Tampa rollout of Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC). The program was founded in 1994 by a professor at Harvard Business School to provide access to capital that small businesses need to grow, to make sure no business is left behind in the area of sustainable growth and job creation. The Tampa Downtown Partnership was invited by Regions Bank to nominate downtown businesses, and among those nominated, a winner has emerged. Sabina Zunguze, the founder of A Gift To Africa, a popular Winter Village Shop in 2016 (and again in 2017) was chosen as the ICCC Tampa representative for her social enterprise project that connects women in her home country of Zimbabwe with U.S. consumers, through fair trade manufacturing and consumerism.
