Shared Interest was launched in 1994, just after Nelson Mandela was elected President, to help lay the economic foundations for a more equitable South Africa. The social investment fund unlocks credit in the country's own financial institutions for small business owners, farmers and home-owners of color who would otherwise be considered "unbankable." The organization has benefited more than 2.2 million people - the vast majority of them women - and begun to work in neighboring countries. It now beginning its work for the next generation.







With your generous support, thousands more Southern Africans this year will gain access to local capital, secure livelihoods and hope for a better future.
