If you needed finance for your business today, would you be able to access it?
One of the greatest challenges for business owners is access to finance. Experian and the NSBC are joining forces to educate small business owners and their employees on their financial and credit health, empowering them to improve their personal and business credit profiles to access the funding required to maintain and grow their business.
The main function of credit bureaus is to hold and share information in order to protect consumers from reckless lending and over-indebtedness. Credit bureaus like Experian promote access to credit to all people.
They play an important part in supporting economic growth by making credit accessible to more people, enabling lenders and businesses to reduce risk, lend responsibly and drive financial inclusion.
By helping SME’s access affordable credit so they can continue to operate, we believe we can have a tangible impact on people’s employment.
