About us

Who we are

Pollen Finance was established in 2015 to service a growing need by SMEs to access funding for business growth. Fast funding is a vital component of their success.

In less than two years, Pollen Finance’s overseas parent company in South Africa has helped businesses with up to $70 million in short term loans, becoming South Africa’s leading business loan provider in the fintech category. Pollen Finance is backed by Anglo African Group, an investment company that has been financing SMEs since 1994.

Our vision

As a leading provider of business loans in South Africa, relying on sophisticated fintech infrastructure, to provide the fastest approval rates for qualifying SMEs, we have brought this concept to Australia.

Our professional service and ease of access ensure that you can depend on Pollen as your first and recurring choice when a business opportunity arises.
