Why choose Southern View Finance Loans South Africa?
As a registered financial services provider, the institution only provides loan to individuals who can comfortably afford to make repayments.
The maximum loan amount one can qualify for is R20 000, while the loan amount for which you qualify is based on your credit profile and payment behaviour.
The institution seeks to provide the most affordable loans through a mobile platform and strives to make pay-outs within 48 hours of approval.
Southern View Finance believes that the lack of a mobile transaction or banking platform that has been widely accepted by the mass market has created a significant opportunity for the lowest cost provider to provide ubiquitous, easy access to smaller, affordable loans through a mobile platform.
For this reason, the institution aims to leverage off retail distribution networks, high mobile telephone penetration and access to reasonably priced funding.
All existing Capfin customers can apply for a loan via CapfinDirect- effectively eliminating the need to spend hours waiting in line
