Lulalend is more than just a fintech company. It’s a belief in the power of small business. We work hard to empower businesses across South Africa with the funds they need to grow, and we have a great time doing it!

Lulalend was founded because there is an underserved market for access to business funding that the banks and other lenders overlook. At Lulalend, we innovate in order to significantly reduce this credit gap – directly assisting our economy and job creation on a grand scale.

Applying for funding takes only minutes, and is completely paperless. Our AI driven technology means we can make a decision instantly and you can receive your funds in just hours. And because we know having someone to speak with about financing is important, we have business funding specialists available to answer any questions.

Lulalend, your friends in funding. For more, visit Lulalend.
