WHAT WE DO

We finance established entrepreneurs.

Because we understand the challenges business owners face, we take more risk and finance more established entrepreneurs
than most financiers. More importantly – we offer you a fair deal. Our core competencies include business finance,
property finance, property management and non-financial services (technical assistance and mentorship).

1. BUSINESS FINANCE

We provide finance ranging from R500 000 to R50 million to established entrepreneurs with a viable formal business. We tailor our finance to meet your business’s unique needs and negotiate pricing and repayment terms with you. We assess your business for viability and engage with you to understand your business’s potential. We don’t just look at security as demonstrated by your financials.

2. PROPERTY FINANCE

We’re one of a handful of financiers who provide business owners with up to 100% in commercial property finance. Our property finance caters to established entrepreneurs with a viable business who want to refinance or purchase their own premises, as well as established entrepreneurs looking to add a property component to their investment portfolio.

3. PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

With 40 years of experience in acquiring and managing properties, we are proud of what we offer to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and Property Equity Partnerships (co-ownerships). Our portfolio boasts over 160 buildings across South Africa and is represented by the full spectrum of industrial, retail and commercial offerings specifically designed to benefit the SME.

4. MENTORSHIP AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Our Mentorship Support Services and Technical Assistance harness the business expertise, skills and wisdom of senior business and professional people – often retired executives, making their services available to entrepreneurs in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), at a fee commensurate with the complexity of the entrepreneur’s business development needs.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

SBU NJAPHA

“Business Partners Limited has helped us not just with the financial aspect of the business. There is something I want to tell you about Business Partners Limited because I knocked on a few doors for funding. Just the interaction with Business Partners Limited made a huge difference in terms of how I saw the business. It’s a whole exercise, a rigorous process that you put your own business through to see the 360-view. So that was highly beneficial for me.”

“Business Partners Limited is really a partner…I know if I need them, I’ve got one person to call.”

“Business Partners Limited is helping me to buy another property. If it wasn’t for Business Partners Limited, I wouldn’t be getting the property that I am getting. They trusted me, they checked if I have the ability to run a business and they have been helpful through the way and they are with me even today.”
