Who We Support
How our lending works
Shared Interest provides ethical finance; working in parts of the world where other lenders are less keen to operate.
We continue to focus on reaching small farming and handcraft groups in disadvantaged areas, and we know that 70% of our customers have no other source of financial support.
We balance the desire for our lending to reach those who need it most, with the need to avoid placing our members’ capital at excessive risk.
