      More than 40% of SMEs in Africa mention the lack of financing as the major factor limiting their growth. To help overcome this challenge, Lulalend offers access to funding to SMEs in South Africa by delivering working capital within 24 hours through their automated online platform.

      Easy access to working capital increases productivity and job creation, both necessary conditions to reduce poverty. A formal job creates impact on income and enables regularity of wages, allowing a family to plan for the future, save money, and improve access to credit, housing, and children’s education. It can lift unskilled workers out of poverty and allow skilled workers to enter the middle class. Therefore financing SMEs with growth potential is one of the key ingredients for inclusive growth.
