MERCHANT CAPITAL WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2012 AS AN ALTERNATIVE PROVIDER OF WORKING CAPITAL, DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR RETAIL SMES IN SOUTH AFRICA

OUR STORY

 

At Merchant Capital we start everyday with a simple purpose: To serve your ambitious growth.

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand what it takes to run a successful business.  
When opportunity for growth presents itself, access to working capital  should be seamless and supportive. Enabling you to think big and execute on demand.

Since our inception in 2012 we have grown with the South African retail community; learning your industries, understanding your needs and funding your futures. During that time  Capricorn Capital Partners, Rand Merchant Investment Holdings and Standard Bank have become shareholders in Merchant Capital.  Working alongside us to bring the cash advance product to even more business owners like you.

Looking forward to growing your business together,
Dov, Daniel, Ryan

Merchant Capital is one of the founding members of the South African SME Finance Association (SASFA), a national, self-regulating body for alternative finance companies.

WE’RE ENTREPRENEURS TOO

We started Merchant Capital in response to the high failure rate among small businesses caused by lack of funding. Our vision is to become the leading provider of disruptive financial services products to small and medium businesses in emerging markets. Because our company was created by entrepreneurs who really understand what running a business is about, we know small businesses can’t rely on easy access to traditional options.

We also know there’s a need for trusty cash flow alternatives. And this is why we use a unique funding and payment model to provide a working capital injection for growing businesses.
