About Us

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.

our unique approach

Alternative Data

We analyse a broad range of alternative data points ranging from social media to bank statements.

Psychometric Analysis

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.

Secured Lending

Depending on our risk assessment of the loan applicant in question, some of our loans are collaterised with movable assets.
