    To be eligible for Lulalend business funding, you need:

    • Minimum annual turnover of R500 000
    • One year trading history
    • Business registered in South Africa

    Any amount starting from R10 000 to R5 000 000.

    Provided we have all the necessary information, the assessment and allocation of funds can take place within 24 hours. To speed up the approval process, we recommend linking your online bank account, which allows your bank to share your transactional data in a read-only format.

    Our process is much faster and takes place completely online. We require no paperwork or collateral. Our costs are transparent and agreed upon upfront. We do not charge admin or initiation fees and there are no penalties for settling early

    Our costs are based on a fixed monthly cost, not an interest rate. The monthly cost is a percentage of the principal amount funded and is determined by the credit assessment of your business.

    You only pay the monthly cost for the period of time you borrow funds, so if you repay early, you save on costs. Simple.

    Use our funding calculator to get an estimated repayment schedule to see what your business funding will cost.

    The entire application process is digital and encrypted to keep it secure. All the info you submit online is treated confidentially and will only be used by the Lulalend team to obtain an application result.

    Your credit score helps lenders see how likely you are to repay your debts. The higher your credit score, the lower your risk for defaulting on payments and the easier it is to get funding.

    When it comes to assessing your eligibility for business funding, we use the real-time performance of your business in combination with your personal and business credit score, to make our decision.

    So yeah, while a high credit score helps, we believe it’s a small part of the bigger picture, which is why we’re able to say “yes” more than traditional lenders!

    Trusted by business owners like you.

    Having easy access to cash is probably one of the most important things, that’s where Lula comes in.

    The biggest challenge we face is access to cash. What Lula has enabled me to do is take that worry about cash flow away.

    I see Lula as a financial partner, and because I have this partner, I don't need to worry about cashflow.
