CONTRACT FINANCE, MARKET ACCESS AND CAPACITY TOGETHER
Let us show you how to play that most important role in the South African economy bringing the small and the big together to grow each other.
If an SME has access to a market as well as access to finance and the ability to run a successful operation, it can also execute on its contract. At the same time, if the SME still has some developmental gaps, it also has access to capacity building which we provide.
Tushiyah gets involved by way of monitoring on the execution of the SME on their supplier contract to help steer them in the right direction. At this point Tushiyah fulfils its enabling role again, by identifying business operations gaps for the SME in question. If the SME needs a better understanding about budgeting, financial management, and in fact, the whole range of business skills that are required to deliver on their mandated contract, Tushiyah helps to identify the type of training required and provides it mindful of the entrepreneurs journey at the time of intervention.
Tushiyah helps to mitigate risk by acting as a conduit who looks for market opportunities on behalf of SMEs, sources and screens SMEs, ensures sound financial transactions to secure capital and if required trains, coaches and mentors them. The access to finance ensures that SMEs spending happens in a very controlled way. In this way, the SME has access to finance, but not access to money, and this improves the probability of success for project execution/contract execution.
