A crowd-funding platform to raise interest-free loans for South Africans affected by lockdown

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

We use crowd funding to connect self-employed low income earners who can’t currently earn with people that can help with a short-term loan.

This is not a once-off donation.

Our interest free crowd funded loans go a lot further:

 

  • Together we can bridge the gap to ensure our recipients stay in business when things return to normal, so they can go back to earning their own income and contributing to the economy.

 

  • Once loans are paid back they can be paid forward – more than one recipient benefits from the original sum of money.

 

  • We use the power of the crowd! Small amounts (from R500) add together to make big differences.

 

  • We remove barriers to accessing traditional cashflow: funds are raised and loaned based on critical urgency and need.
