A New Model
How We Help Businesses Thrive
We provide capital in the form of assets that are needed for the business to function. This allows the investments to be backed by these assets, which belong to Mutualism while the business raises enough to pay back the principal.
Once the assets are paid back, ownership of the asset is transferred to the investee. Mutualism’s model of “asset-backed investment” mitigates risk for our partners.
Our hands-on consulting ensures that we properly equip our partners with skills for years of success. We approach consulting through an integrated approach that addresses a business needs to drive sustainability, community engagement, product quality, marketing and sales.
Mutualism builds relationships with its partners to ensure long-term success. Our mission to foster community growth guides our strategy. We provide ongoing support for partners to improve business operations and efficiency.

Many years ago when I started doing research about financing (for her food trailer), I realized this was going to kill me financially because most of the banks that do offer you something, its always 25% and up. I started exploring through different financial agencies, just looking at evaluating the different rates, and I realized that if I do this.... its not gonna be feasible at all. It was always a dream but I knew that I couldn't do it at this point of my life, unless I win the lotto and I become a millionaire out of the blue.But yea, having Mutualism on my team and my side, actually made my dream come true, and today I'm sitting in Katrientjie's. My dream came true, I can support my community, and one of the most important stuff, I can actually offer employment to some of our unemployed young people or women of the community.
