Sycamore is run by an experienced team of financial and
technology professionals, with several years of industry
experience. It’s no secret that access to finance is one of the
main issues affecting the rapid growth of individuals and
businesses in Africa. Our approach to tacking the issue of
access to finance is somewhat different:
- We believe in responsible lending: a loan should lift one up financially.
- We encourage responsible budgeting and spending.
- We also believe in earning as a way to financial freedom (and encourage customers to earn through our P2P service)
how it works
and earn interest
A P2P platform to link lenders and borrowers
and pay interest
our unique approach
We analyse a broad range of alternative data points ranging from social media to bank statements.
In determining the eligibility of a borrower, one of the things we consider is the character and intergrity of individual by way of behavioural deduction.
Depending on our risk assessment of the loan applicant in question, some of our loans are collaterised with movable assets.
