Grow your business without chasing funders for money

Many small & medium businesses – SMEs – struggle to get funding from banks or investors to grow their businesses. Especially SMEs located in Africa and South Asia.

Why does your SME struggle to get funding?

  • Maybe you cannot show solid growth prospects
  • The price the funder is charging is too high
  • The funder will only give you less money than you need
  • Your collateral is not enough
  • The funder is not convinced that your business is commercially viable

The result? You cannot grow your business the way you want.

But why do you keep chasing banks and investors?

Suppose you could grow your business without chasing funders?

What would you be able to achieve if you did not have to depend on somebody else to give you money?

I help small & medium business owners increase profits so that they can grow their business without depending on funders.
