About – Mettle Merchant Finance

It’s become common knowledge in the SME industry that 8 out of 10 businesses end up closing their doors in the first couple of years of operation.

It’s a shocking statistic and the root cause behind this is problems in the cash flow department. The businesses that do make it out alive, make it on the skin of their teeth in the early stages and take quite some time before they can feel comfort cash wise.

Short-term business loan

When problems like this are faced, a healthy option to traditional business financing is to take out a short-term loan. Where, you ask? Why at Mettle Merchant Finance of course!

We inject capital into your business as soon as you need it! Don’t stress over budgets and cash flow, that’s our department, we tailor your package to suit the business’ needs and won’t ask for any collateral either.

Our company is actually a joint venture between Combined Finance Holdings and Mettle, which is a subsidiary of JSE-listed company Tradehold Ltd.

Structured finance options

This partnership emerged when both companies shared in the compassion for struggling small businesses that required assistance with their working capital. The reason for the struggle, we identified, was due to the way banks had structured the business finance options that were available to these SME’s. They simply could not provide them with what they needed to sustain themselves.

Tradehold is a property and a finance company that came to acquire Mettle, the Cape Town-based financier in 2014. It wasn’t long after that we realised the demand in South Africa for SME’s to obtain simple and flexible quick loan solutions to keep their businesses afloat in troubling times.
