A Stokvel is "a type of credit union, or communal savings group, in which a group of people enter into an agreement to contribute a fixed amount of money to a common pool weekly, fortnightly or monthly, to be drawn in rotation according to the rules of the particular stokvel". (from A.K. Lukhele, "Stokvels in South Africa: Informal Savings Schemes by Blacks for the Black Community," Amagi Books, Johannesburg, 1990, p. 1.) Some of these communal savings clubs throw occasional parties for members and their famlies/guests with small portions of their collective savings, While some iStokvel collectives focus on throwing regular parties as income-generating public events, charging for admission, food and drinks, and sharing the profits amongst members.
