A WORD FROM THE EDITOR


Dear visitor and international investor,


We warmly welcome you, if this is your first visit to Africabiz Online - The ultimate newsletter on trading and investing in 49 sub-Saharan African countries. If you are a regular and faithful reader, welcome back.

- COMPLEMENTARY CURRENCY TO NATIONAL CURRENCY: DEFINITION

In previous deliveries [1, 2] Africabiz Online hailed the emergence of the BRICS entity that would provide financing alternatives to African countries in addition to the existing ones - mainly procured till now by the World Bank, the IMF and cohort.

The setup of the BRICS entity is a breakthrough that would assist developing nations get financing for comprehensive development scheme - the most efficient way to create riches for all, and alleviate poverty - as exposed in Africans, Stop Being Poor!

In said book are listed score and score of financing engineering schemes/suggestions to power on the implementation of comprehensive development projects in African nations.

One important financing alternative, however, had not been exposed in the book, in order not the cloud the description of the exposed Integrated Developing Scheme, to make it "easy" to read and comprehend for all.

That missing financing alternative is the description of Complementary Currency Systems that allow for (Mutual) credit to be granted to producers in rural areas, interest free, making "money" available to rural folks to pay for their vital needs, to use as medium of exchanges within the circle of fellows members, to purchase raw materials in order to produce and sell goods.

A Complementary Currency System acts in parallel with the existing national currency (issued by the Central Bank,) to make liquidity available to craftsmen, farmers, herders and all rural people engage in economic activities who have difficulty to access the normal banking system, that charge "huge" interest rates - and require various credentials and collateral to grant a loan.

The PDF document available here gives a comprehensive description about Complementary Currency Systems.

- HOW IT WORKS

The diagram below, courtesy of http://koru.or.ke/bangla, is the perfect illustration of how the system works. Bengla standing for Bengla-Pesa - the Complementary Currency setup in Kenya by social workers dedicated to improving the living standard of rural people, providing them with "alternative" financing means to produce and purchase goods and services.


How Complementary Currency Works

Local business people list with the system's governing body (Bengla Business Network), get "mutual credit" vouchers to use as a payment mean to purchase raw materials, various production inputs and other goods, to produce and sell - with participant members of the Business Network.

The governing body would use part of the repayment by the adherents to provide community development services.

- IS THIS MONEY FORGERY?

Most of the time, in communities implementing Complementary Currency scheme around the world, the physical voucher acting as payment-mean looks nothing like correspondent (official) national currency. Therefore one cannot say that the voucher is a forgery of the existing national currency.

However, it might be seen as a "forgery" by the national Central Bank if its inception and establishment had not been endorsed by national authorities, and is the sole result of the undertaking of social workers.
