Shared Interest

Shared Interest: $15,000 to continue with the implementation of Plan 2020, a 5-year strategic plan. For over 20 years, Shared Interest has opened doors along the financial inclusion value chain for previously excluded entrepreneurs by guaranteeing commercial scale loans for small businesses and cooperatives. Through its local affiliate Thembani, the organization also directly supports its grassroots project partners as they submit applications and negotiate loan terms with mainstream financial lenders.
