ED Funding

Enterprise Development Fund South Africa


Enterprise Development is aimed at developing small, medium and micro-enterprises (SMMES) in the Agriculture, Manufacturing and Commercial sectors. The portfolio funds enterprises that will create permanent sustainable jobs. The goal is to develop rural, peri-urban and township communities to ensure they participate in the mainstream economy of South Africa.

Our Enterprise Development (ED) Fund provides working, growth and expansionary capital to small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) that have the potential to  scale and  create sustainable jobs in South Africa.

Funding is made available as working capital subject to predefined terms and conditions.  These conditions are jointly defined by Renablist as well as corporations that invest their Enterprise Development budgets into the ED Fund.

We are in advanced negotiations with global companies with a local presence to grow our fund to house their various enterprise development interests.  We also invite other South African corporations to partner with us to advance their Supplier and Enterprise Development interests and maximise impact.

Our team of financial professionals partner with SMME business owners and provide financial solutions in a sustainable and mutually beneficial manner to ensure that our SMMEs are able to grow, thrive and eventually enter the mainstream economy.
