    • R0 - that's the cost to transfer cash between your accounts.
    • R0 - that's the cost to send/receive payment notifications.

    It offers easy access to working capital whenever you need it, allowing you to take advantage of growth opportunities or cover any cash flow gaps.

    • No need to reapply when you want to withdraw.

    • Flexible repayment terms, including the option to repay early with no early repayment penalties.

    Capital facilities let SMEs – that’s you – access capital up to an agreed limit whenever they want, without having to reapply each time. The lender – that’s us – agrees to make a line of capital available to you. All you need to do is repay the credit over the agreed term. 

    Lula is a responsible lender, so your ability to withdraw from your capital facility is always subject to a credit and affordability assessment.

    Our online application process takes only minutes and is paperless. Simply supply us with your basic personal and business details. We’ll also ask for 3 months’ recent transactional data, which can be provided quickly and securely by giving your business bank account permission to send us read-only data.

    You’ll also gain access to Lulaflow, a powerful cash flow manager that lets you track and manage your finances in one place.
