Services active during the Covid-19 lock down
The Covid-19 lock down in South Africa has a direct impact on our financial system. The slow down in business increases the risk for credit default. This is a very high risk period for our lending partners. We received communication last week with changes to our lending partner’s business operations. As a result some of our partners have closed due to not being able to confirm employment now. Other partners are using their liquidity available to assist existing clients.
We do have partners that are still available to provide you with support during this period. Their systems are online and they can provide you with the best caring support they can offer you in a digital space. As an entrepreneur couple, we like to invest our time in different interests that we have. We work remote and have done so for a decade so we have access to more resources and services that can assist you now.
In this blog we will detail all the services and tools we can make available to you during the Covid-19 lock down.
If you work for a company as an employee then you can apply for a personal loan.
During Covid-19 lock down we will only assist with personal loans up to R150 000. The credit terms have changed and only clients that are low risk will qualify for funding. This means that you would need to have a really strong credit record to qualify. You must have permanent income and be able to afford the loan during this period. We can assist clients that earn at least R3000 per month.
How it works
You will complete your details on partner’s form for a pre-approval. When your details go into the system, a credit check is run to see if you qualify to apply. If you do pass pre-approval an agent will contact you to process the next part of your application. You will receive an sms that lets you know if your application was unsuccessful.
Should you be interested to apply for funding, you can complete your application here.
Business loans | Loans for self employed individuals
This is a solution for business owners or self -employed South Africans that need funding. As a business owner you do not qualify to apply for a personal loan so this is your solution for funding. During the Covid-19 lock down we will be able to assist with unsecured funding up to R1 500 000. Our partners will accept new applications as long as they meet the extra criteria:
- Your business should still be trading during this period. This will ensure you have disposable income to cover your loan installment.
- No debt restructuring will be possible for the loan. You would need to repay the loan within a 6 month period.
Here are examples of what a loan will cost you per month:
R20 000 will cost from R3700 per month
R50 000 will cost from R8900 per month
R100 000 will cost from R19000 per month
R200 000 will cost from R38000 per month
R500 000 will cost from R93000 per month
R1 000 000 will cost from R187 000 per month
R1500 000 will cost from R280 000 per month

Low score | Over-indebted clients
Credit providers are currently in a difficult position due to the Covid-19 lock down. They need to manage their risk and liquidity while assisting existing clients. There will be clients that never defaulted on payments that will need help during this time.
This means that there will be less room available to help the lower score clients. So if your score is below 600, or you have adverse listings on your credit profile you will battle to find credit now. Your creditors will encourage you to seek help and consider debt restructuring.
You are in great hands here because we have 7 years experience in this field. We have helped many over-indebted clients find solutions to their financial problems. Every second Wednesday we send out a newsletter with financial literacy tips to help you manage your debt. This is a free service where you can access our latest blogs.

Reduce your expenses and keep your cover
Maintaining a cash flow to keep afloat is priority on everyone’s list right now. Before things get tight, we want to let you know that there are ways you can find money before you have to cancel services. In February we did a comparative quotation on our insurance and we managed to save 60% of our premium. The cover remained the same and we managed to get some added perks that we didn’t have before.
As entrepreneurs we believe that you don’t need money for success, you just need a better strategy. We invite you to use our strategy to help you access money by reducing your insurance premiums. This can help with more available money curing the Covid-19 lock down.
To accept please provide us with consent to contact you here.
