Alpha Rashid Mshihiri – A Proponent of Micro
Investment For The Benefit of Developing
Alpha Rashid Mshihiri is a professional Business Analyst
with over ten years of experience working for different
companies in the industrial and service oriented field. He
has a comprehensive understanding of the way
businesses function, and believes in the potential of
investing in poverty ridden economies to help level the
global playing field. More specifically, Mshihiri thinks that
the concept of micro investment can be implemented for
the greater good of a large number of people who are
unable to progress forward owing to a lack of financial
Micro investment entails the execution of a two tier
structure where in the primary investor lends to multiple
secondary investors, who in turn lend to multiple tertiary
entrepreneurs. The advantage of this tier system is that
the opportunity for entrepreneurship is increased many
fold, since there are multiple sources for investment.
Using this system, an individual can be both a borrower
and a investor , thus reaping the benefit of both.
Alpha Rashid Mshihiri reasons that although micro
financing (different from micro investment) has been
implemented in many developing economies, the
situation has backfired.
He spent valuable time
investigating the nature of micro finance companies, and
concluded that the interest rate of these loans is so high
that the borrower will drown in it, and what started out as
revival will lead to more destruction. According to Alpha
Rashid Mshihiri, micro investment is the solution to the
problem created by the downfall of micro financing.
