Access to Finance for Small Businesses in Tough Times with Trevor Hambayi

Join BongoHive for an evening with Trevor Hambayi, Financial Analyst, PhD Research Fellow and Author.

Event Description:

Most small businesses rely on lenders or the three Fs (friends, family and fools) to provide the capital they need to either open a business or to finance capital improvements. Banks also have been reluctant to lend out money to small businesses. What are some of the alternative options for SMEs to access finance? In this talk, Trevor Hambayi will highlight the in-depth challenge of accessing finance by SMEs in Zambia and what alternative SMEs should consider. What they don’t tell you!
