Lendable supports the growth of fintechs and climate solutions in emerging and frontier markets. We provide the capital, expertise and insights that businesses need to scale company growth and deliver transformational impacts in local communities.
Our local origination teams have extensive experience structuring deals in frontier and emerging markets, and are focused on sourcing a diversified portfolio of borrowers that will grow with us long term.
Our borrowers are more than just clients, they are our partners. We offer ongoing support, growing with our partners as they reach new milestones.
Global expertise – local engagement
At the heart of the Lendable solution is a combination of global expertise and local insight. We have offices in London, Nairobi and Singapore – connecting our African, Latin American and Asian regions to global financial centres.
It means that we are fully engaged – our insight doesn’t come through a computer screen half a world away from the action. Our people understand global financial trends, their local markets and individual borrowers – and we see the very real impact that our partners make, day after day.
With deep knowledge of all the complexities in play when working to scale our partners and climate solutions, we are able to support borrowers as they translate innovative ideas into transformational businesses.
Debt financing is an alternative to equity financing, allowing fintechs to scale without diluting ownership. For founders and managers at start-ups, the ability to raise debt protects equity ownership and provides what is often a more relevant, lower cost capital tool to finance working capital needs. Nonetheless, when evaluating debt options, it’s important to consider several points, including assessing readiness, gauging debt needs, and choosing the right debt partner.
Our team is always on hand to offer guidance and help you decide whether debt financing is right for your business.
