TEMBEKA SOCIAL INVESTMENT CO LTD
A challenging collaboration for wholesale development funding

***********************************

TEMBEKA is a South African social investment company that seeks to promote sustainable development in poor communities by initiating and acting in a Chain of Financial Solidarity. As shown in the diagram below:

Tembeka’s role in this chain of financial solidarity is to mobilise investors to become involved in sustainable development through soft loans, institutional building grants and the purchase of Tembeka shares. This investment is then used to make relevant and affordable finance accessible to service providers such as NGO’s, Trusts, CBO’s Credit Unions and Development companies and, by extension their clients form disadvantaged communities. In this way Tembeka is able to effectively link investors and service providers and is able to reach a large number of persons needing access to relevant and affordable finance, as well as, a broad range of people’s self employment economic activities in both urban and rural South Africa and eventually it hopes to extend this service to Southern Africa.

The activities of TEMBEKA centre on the following two main areas:
1. Finding investments: Identifying and engaging with institutions, corporate social investors, and individuals who subscribe to Tembeka’s vision of bringing relevant finance to disadvantaged communities to get their financial support.
2. Making investments: Identifying relevant service-provider organisations and establishing financial partnerships by providing these organisations with:
        o wholesale financial facilities for on lending to their clients,
        o Guarantees for leverage purposes with other financial institutions, or
        o Equity investments in establishing or strengthening relevant and new service provider organisations that have a proven market demand for their services.

APPLICATION FOR ASISTANCE
Tembeka makes wholesale loans available to organisations to on-lend to their clients or directly to qualifying groups that have non-financial support, but where no retail facilities exist. Should your organisation be interested in applying for Tembeka’s assistance then please telephone, fax or e-mail us so that we could meet with you or send you further information to assist your application.

HOW YOU / YOUR ORGANISATION CAN BE INVOLVED AS AN INVESTOR TO SUPPORT TEMBEKA
        · Individuals and Institutions that share in TEMBEKA’s vision are welcome to make financial contributions to strengthen Tembeka as an institution, grant Tembeka long-term (5 to 7yr.) interest-free or soft loans and by purchasing ordinary or preference shares in TEMBEKA. (par value 1 share = 1ZAR)
        · TEMBEKA offers shareholders an opportunity to make an investment which will give an immediate social return of the development which the funds will be used for, and wish to assure our investors that we will work hard to maintain the nominal value of their investment and to even give them a small financial return, which we trust they will allow us to reinvest in TEMBEKA, when a return is realised.
