Mashonisas, a Zulu word meaning to ‘sink’, is the name given to the legitimate face of loan sharks, who lend pay-day money to the low income earners who find that they fall short before the end of the month. They are considered to be amongst the most ruthless exploiters of the poorest and most vulnerable of wage earners.
