Bridge Taxi Finance

Bridge Taxi Finance

The taxi industry in South Africa is robust and highly competitive. More than half of the country’s citizens rely on public transport on a daily basis. This means that minibus taxis carry millions of commuters on a daily basis.  Another factor that has made this mode of transport so popular and a viable business prospect for many people is that it has high profit-making potential. In addition, there are meter taxis as well as Uber to contend with. 

More individuals are joining the taxi industry, which creates employment for an estimated 400 000 drivers.

While some people are able to finance their venture using their own cash, others turn to lending institutions.  While banks are offering vehicle finance solutions, more micro lending institutions are creating tailor-made solutions for this demand.

Many companies that provide bridging finance offer asset-backed finance. This finance is provided against the security of an asset. It is usually available to individuals who require cash to close the deal.

Essentially, a bridge loan can be described as a short term loan against a confirmed or guaranteed cash inflow expected in the near future. These loans are useful for covering short term needs, so they are repayable within 6 to 12 months.

Getting this type of finance means that you will be able to repay such a short term loan when your transactions materialise.
