Kapilink Overview

Kapilink is a user-friendly online platform that builds an ecosystem of financiers, large corporates and MSMEs to facilitate Supply Chain Financing and Collections in one place. The platform helps to improve working capital management and liquidity generation.

Kapilink facilitates Supply Chain Financing & Collections in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Model.

Supply chain finance aims to lower costs for both buyer and seller and typically requires a cloud-based platform to which the buyers and suppliers have access. This is where Kapilink comes in because it supports various working capital solutions including: factoring & reverse factoring, invoice discounting, and dynamic discounting.

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are the cornerstone of many African economies, but one of the major problems hindering their growth is the locked-up cash (receivables) from their buyers (usually large corporates).

The current problem with traditional lending methods

  1. Traditional lending methods rely heavily on collateral and data on MSMEs which is usually inadequate.
  2. Complex, lengthy processes.
  3. Expensive MSME financing.

Through Kapilink, buyers can increase their payment terms, MSMEs can get paid earlier, and Financial Institutions get opportunity to deploy funds and make earnings.
