Shared Interest Inc.

Shared Interest is a social investment fund which guarantees South African bank loans to community development financially engaged in South Africa's reconstruction process. Their work, and our socially responsible “endowment loans” of more than $30,000 to date, help to strengthen grassroots organizations and enable them to provide increasing amounts of affordable credit for small business and social housing in South Africa's lowest income community.
