Manufacturing funding

Managing an ever-changing business

Applying for manufacturing funding in South Africa can be challenging. Unsecured SME finance is often subject to heavy restrictions and some of the requirements are just plain outdated. Many traditional lenders haven't caught up to the fact that the manufacturing landscape has changed — we live in a time of automation, machine learning and the cloud. The bottom line is that South African manufacturers are operating in Industry 4.0 and have very different and dynamic financing needs compared to other sectors.

No matter the type of manufacturing you specialise in, access to manufacturing funding is crucial to maintaining business as usual during quieter periods, or taking the next step on your business’s growth path.

One of the main challenges standing in the way of SMEs succeeding is access to business finance. It stands to reason that access to manufacturing funding should be fast, easy and uncomplicated.
