Telkom Lend uses technological innovation, which gives us the upper hand in providing Small Businesses with quick and more affordable funding. Telkom Lend allows Small Businesses to get an answer the SAME DAY and access to capital in just 24 hours. We are one of the only flexible Small Business funders – as payments are tailored to YOU!

        What’s your deal with Traditional Lenders?

        Traditional Lenders just don’t get small businesses. They’re strict, finicky and are frugal with lending – because obviously, they’re scared you won’t pay them back. They want collateral, a long business history, huge cash flow plans, flowcharts, the kitchen sink and high interest all in one sitting. This makes it difficult for SMEs to grow – which we don’t vibe with, to say the least.

        Why is unsecured funding better than a traditional loan?

        Traditional loans are so 2002. Traditional loans/Secured funding means putting your assets up as collateral, and that’s not how we roll. Traditional loans are so dated and super risky, to be honest. Banks are difficult to get loans out of because they want to see the future of your business before its time. They want to know where every cent goes before they give you funding (with the same repayment every month). Where we differ is that while our funding is unsecured – we trust your vision and want to partner with you every step of your epic business journey. There’s no chance of losing your house or your spouse with Telkom Lend.

        Why is Telkom Lend hating on startups?

        Hey! No hate, only love. We’re a big fan of startups, and we’d love to help. Got a business idea? JUST START, hustle for 6 months or so and build up some turnover – Then we’ll know you’ve got what it takes to GO BIG. We do this so that we know you’re ready, and have some experience under your belt, to know how to use your moola to grow your business. Sounds fair right?
