Working with EFKen

Zana za Biashara

EFKEN provides equipment loans for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and farmers. By becoming an approved equipment supplier for our leases, you will no longer have to turn away SMEs who do not have the cash outright to purchase your equipment, or who do not have enough collateral or are not formal enough to qualify for a traditional bank loan. This will mean you can access a much larger market for your equipment.

Once the customer has paid their down-payment to EFKen and signed a contract, EFKen will place the order directly with the supplier; note that EFKen will purchase the equipment and assume legal title, not our customer. We aim to have service and maintenance arrangements with the supplier for the tenor of the lease in order to ensure that customer’s business operates smoothly.

We have a database of approved equipment suppliers which is given to customers when they attend our workshops and seminars. The customer then contacts their preferred equipment suppliers to request pro forma invoices for the equipment they require, which are included in their application. EFKEN thoroughly vets all its customers, investing in reliable applications only.  If their application is approved then EFKEN will contact the suppliers to verify the pro forma invoices and prepare a final equipment package for the customer’s approval.

Requirements

To qualify as an approved supplier, you will need to undergo vetting including;
  • Review of all available documentation including business license, PIN certificate, VAT certificate, certificate of incorporation, and any other licenses as applicable;
  • Depending on the supplier tier, some form of proof of your financial stability, potentially including audited accounts,
  • We may require references from customers who have procured this type of equipment from you in the past in Kenya or the East Africa region;
  • A site visit to your premises; and
  • A price comparison for the equipment you provide.
