Why we’re different

Sasfin places value against your stock. The working capital solution isn’t an overdraft facility. It’s designed to help you to get the most out of the working capital cycle – by giving you the financial breathing space between the cash-out and cash-in process of the cycle. 

You don’t have to use your working capital or bank facilities to open letters of credit and pay for imports. You can allocate those funds to your business, improve efficiencies and grow.  Our solution is about managing working capital more effectively – so that funding the growth of your business to step up import volumes doesn’t deplete working capital resources.
