Since February, 2018, Zefa Microfinance Bank has focused on supporting the dreams and aspirations of many financially excluded members of society.
ZEFA provides access to financing, though microcredits, to those who have a business idea or an on-going business or project but are not able to find access to the necessary funds through existing commercial banks. Their businesses are considered not bankable by the established commercial banks because they cannot meet the standard bank loan conditions
We support these businesses not only by financing, but by providing free training and support
By supporting entrepreneurship, ZEFA promotes self-employment, reduces unemployment and helps beneficiaries to achieve financial independence, so that they can offer socially and financially to the society.
Our Slogan is "Zefa Microfinance Bank…… Supporting your dreams”
Through our processes we build personalized relationships of support and trust through simple and effective procedures
There is no discrimination in the type of legitimate business we support. Our support may range from salaries, equipment or working capital, as long as the customer can prove that this is necessary for the business or project.
We do not ask for shares or part ownership of the businesses we support. The entrepreneur is in the center of our efforts at all times.
Training, Supervision and support both before and after the disbursement are free of charge.
