    Managing an ever-changing manufacturing business?

    Applying for manufacturing funding in South Africa can be challenging, we know. Some traditional lenders are still stuck with the old, when in fact, the manufacturing landscape has changed — we live in a time of automation, machine learning, and the cloud. The bottom line is that South African manufacturers are operating in Industry 4.0 and have very different and dynamic financing needs compared to other sectors.

    Funding the future.

    Small-to-medium manufacturing businesses are the future innovators of South Africa. The furniture craftsmen, the textile factories, the artisans, tinkers, builders and designers.

    No matter the type of manufacturing you specialise in, access to manufacturing funding is crucial to maintaining business as usual during quieter periods or taking the next step on your business’s growth path.

    One of the main challenges standing in the way of SMEs succeeding is access to business finance. It stands to reason that access to manufacturing funding should be fast, easy and uncomplicated.

    We believe in small businesses.

    Here at Lula, we believe in small businesses and want to see every proudly South African manufacturing business reach its full potential. Whether you need quick and easy access to business finance to buy equipment such as a 3D printer or simply need to buy raw materials for the upcoming busy season, we’re here to help.

    We know you can’t afford to wait for traditional lenders to catch up. That’s why we’re ready to get behind your business right now. We think applying for manufacturing funding should be quick and easy, without all that unnecessary paperwork.

    With our hassle-free online application, you will be able to grab the competitive edge you need to stand out. No queues, no waiting period — you’ll be provided with a decision within 24 hours.
