Funding solutions, tailored to suit your business’ needs

Following a career in banking and lending, Merwe Scholtz and Suzaan Loots founded Capfin in 2010 to capitalise on a growing inability of banks to service personal lending markets. Having grown Capfin to maturity, they started Genfin to provide businesses with a real and professional alternative to bank lending.

At Genfin, we share the desire to see thriving businesses grow. Our commitment to quick business assessments and sensible decisions make us the perfect funding partner for your business.

Clients can count on Genfin working with them to find the right solution for their business funding needs.

We are a trusted funding partner with a proven track record:

Since 2010 we have extended over R500m in business loans through our Australian subsidiary, Business Fuel, prior to launching in South Africa.

We have business focused and reputable partners including the Steinhoff International Group.

We have an established management team with a 15-year proven track record.

Key elements that distinguish us from banks and other lending companies:

We understand businesses and look at your business as owners, not bankers. Red tape, credit committees and endless paper trails fail to value your business prospects and needs. Therefore, we evaluate the important business metrics before deciding on a client’s funding request.

We believe in simplicity. We have one uncomplicated application process whatever your business’ needs. Whether you need equipment or vehicle finance, cash flow, invoice funding or simply just a business loan, our standard application process always applies.

We realise that time matters and commit to paying out your loan within a week of receiving your application.


  • A trading history of more than 12 months
  • An annual turnover of more than R1million
