Every business has a story. Here’s mine.
My career in the financial sector made me cross paths with many people from all walks of life. What amazed me was their financial illiteracy even in basic money matters. Many were simply either not interested or too busy to learn even the basics. I didn’t see much in our education system either. I encountered countless people who were heavily in debts, due to the lack of this life saving skill.
My first hand experience with my clients and their financial situation, probed me to start my own micro-financing company. I saw great potential in this industry to help people in their financial needs in whatever way I could. And of course to make a living for myself while doing so. The industry was perceived in the wrong light by the public and I had the confident that, if done the right way, I can help change that negative image and breathe some fresh air to it.
Today I meet many clients at my office. Not all are here to take a loan. Some just seek financial advice. While I am not a financial guru, I am passionate about sharing my limited knowledge in finance to anyone who may find it useful. Check out my blog in which I have very candidly shared my knowledge and thoughts with you.
Finally, I take pride in respecting our clients’ privacy and being transparent in our disclaimer of legal responsibility.
