SCF Capital Solutions was founded in 2015, as a financing company with a specific focus on the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) market. Founded by senior bankers, with a combination of over 40 years of experience in the the financial services, we bring international trade finance and corporate banking skills to solve SME problems.
SCF Capital Solutions provides short-term working capital to SMEs with public / private sector contracts - to provide goods and/or services. The funding provided can be utilised to cover the cost associated with fulfilling the contract.
Our current focus is in the "Green" Economy - goods / services mitigating climate change. We finance reduction of greenhouse gases, improvement of energy efficiency and promotion of added renewable energy capacity and projects with direct environmental benefits.
Our first fund was a pilot fund of R60 million funded by the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) Green Fund and the Small Enterprise Finance Agency (sefa). We are now in the process of setting up a second fund, with the United Nation's Green Climate Fund (GCF), DBSA, sefa and a private investor.
Through its activities, SCF Capital Solutions aims to achieve improved sustainability in all areas where we are active. This is achieved through promoting projects with direct environmental benefits and by financing projects with a high environmental performance.
Our vision is to help develop profitable, sustainable SMEs and create employment through the growth of these SMEs and contribute to a more environmentally sustainable society.
