I took a loan from Triift Africa to buy an oven and bulk materials for my fish roll business. The funding made it easier for me to expand my business and match with the demand I was getting. I really liked that the loan was structured in a way that truly supported my growth with a reasonable interest rate and flexible repayment terms.”

“When I was in 300 level, I got funding from Triift Africa to get a camera.
My photography gig was helping to cover my tuition, living expenses and support my parents and siblings back home. However, I didn’t own a camera. I always borrowed a camera to work (or rent sometimes). The limitations for not having a readily available camera at my disposal were that I was missing out on some gigs and I was barely experienced because I couldn’t always practice my learnings. The finance from Triift Africa really changed my story as it impacted my growth and career.”
