Grofin - Support for businesses

GroFin is a company of professionals that are the pioneers of developing and specialising in the financing of small and growing businesses (SGBs) across the African continent, as well as the Middle East.

They were established in 2004 and since then have offered this support and financial aid through the combination of medium-term loan capital and value-added business support.

Creating employment

Development of economic growth on this continent is imperative when you look at those who succumb to the living conditions of low and middle-class households. They strive to build markets and improve where they can by creating employment for those individuals.

With over 30 international development finance institutions as partners, it’s no wonder the development organisations and private funders have helped them raise figures that to some might seem impossible, yet they achieved these numbers.

Through these raised funds, they are able to fund programs that help less fortunate individuals through opportunities for employment. Simply by investing in SMEs, they bring joy to households that beforehand weren’t bringing home any fat for their family to live on. Some 95 000 jobs were generated alone through Grofin.

Their objective

To provide an unparalleled solution for business finance and support to small to medium enterprises. Their singular and fundamental goal is to help sustain employment and subsequently impact the communities that are struggling with poverty and lower incomes through the development of a sustainable model for this small growing business segment.

Their aim is to be leaders in the development of sustainable finance for the future entrepreneurs of small-to-medium-sized companies. They strive to put these companies in a reputable standing with other stakeholders, consumers and all others that see value in the business.

Value-added products and services

When it comes to service, Grofin always brings their A game. They have designed a toolkit that easily enables you to apply for any of the valuable services that they have on offer.

Depending on your requirements, you can apply for the product that suits you best and you will subsequently receive hands-on, experienced support in that sector.

They are confident that you will see benefit from these services and that is solely due to the 8 000+ entrepreneurs that they have assisted in growing their businesses.

Reliable investment manager

They are a firm believer in support and finance being a partnership offer when doing business as well as guiding you in business.

They offer services through their reliable investment manager, who is certified by the Association of Accredited Small Business Consultants (AASBC).
