What Our Clients Say

Motlhabane Abnar Tsebe

MAT Group
Industry: Transport and storage services

“I want to encourage my fellow business operators that if you walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far into the future, then hold hands, like I’m holding hands with Business Partners Ltd to grow this business to the upper level.” Motlhabane received finance and technical assistance from our SECO (Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs) supported programme.

Ratau Mphahlele

Baroka Funerals
Industry: Funeral services, Financial and insurance activities

“The support and services that I’ve received from Business Partners, is when we bought this property in town our head office… we really needed somebody to finance it. We went to your traditional banks, and nothing happened and somebody advised me about Business Partners and they came to the party.”

DR Millicent Motsepe

MDM Orthodontics
Industry: Medical

“In the beginning when I started my business, it wasn’t especially when it came to finance because I had to finance my business from scratch, out of my own pocket as it is not easy for entrepreneurs to get funding from banks. Business Partners has impacted my business in a positive way in a sense that my mentor helps me to grow and brought in new ideas where I was lacking and they also helped me to buy the business premises that I’m using, of which now I have ownership of.”
