“I manage a hardware store in Ruai and like many businesses, I sometimes experience stockouts. This can be damaging to a business. So back in 2018, I decided to reach out to Asante Financial Services Group for a short term loan just to keep my business running. I’ve been using them ever since for the day to day running of my business and my business has really grown. I’m glad I chose them as our relationship has been great from the get-go.”
Faith Superior Hardware Store Manager
“Having a wines and spirits business in Nairobi has its fair share of challenges. We have to deal with the occasional visits from the city council, damage and stockouts. To deal with this effectively, I tried using Asante Finance’s loan service. I’ve been using them since 2018 and paying my loans on time. They recently told me that my loan limit has increased and that was great news for me. It’s been easier managing my store thanks to Asante.”
Empire Wines & Spirits – Kitengela
“My grocery shop mainly caters to University students who live nearby. Sometimes, the students go on strike and are required to go home. Such periods have been bad for business as I end up not being able to sell my perishable goods. I’ve been keeping things running by using short term loans from Asante Financial Services Group. They help me with cash for the day to day running of the business and small business investments. Their interest rates are favourable as well. I’ll always be grateful to them.”
Bethany Village Shop
“My restaurant is called Rock Villa Restaurant. I’m really passionate about my biashara and I’m always looking for ways I can improve my customer’s experience here. I’ve been getting financial help from Asante that I invest back in the business. I bought a pool table with my first loan from them and my customers love it!”
