Lulalend supports small businesses by making access to SMME funding easy. But while banks leave you with nothing more than a handshake, we take an interest in our clients, and love to see how they put our SMME funding to use to help their businesses grow.
Last month the Lulalend team visited one of our favourite clients, Jerome Roberts, owner of SJR Printers and SJR Digital in Cape Town.
Jerome’s story is an inspiring one. After completing his studies, he joined the family business, which his father had started after being retrenched from the company he had served for many years.
Jerome’s father built a successful printing business using the skills and contacts he had made over the years. As owner, Jerome has continued his father’s legacy, moving the business to larger premises in Parow, employing a dedicated team of local staff and diversifying the business to meet changing industry needs.
Today, the printing side of the business is still flourishing, but Jerome has successfully managed to incorporate digital printing and promotional work into the business and expanded his client base in the process.
Jerome needed short-term SMME funding to increase his working capital during the quiet season, and was impressed with the ease of application and quick access to funding Lulalend was able to provide.
Lulalend is proud to support South Africa’s entrepreneurs and SMEs, by making access to SMME funding easy, and allowing these businesses to grow on their own terms.
