Everlend was founded in 2020 and later incorporated as a company in 2021 out
of the desire to address a real problem that affects millions of people across Africa: the
of lack of access to affordable and convenient credit services. Most banks are concentrated
in urban centres and struggle to reach remote, rural communities. Credit made Easy Equates
to a dignified Life
Everlend is a social digital (USSD, Web App, Call Center and agent
based) platform that offers digital green loan (agricultural credits), sources for
genuine quality affordable farm inputs as well as provide market information and
last-mile delivery within 24 hours to farmers across Uganda. At Everlend, we use data
and mobile tech to enable millions of low-income earners (like Farmers and small
business owners especially youths and women) to access credit.
Partially regulated microfinance organisations and savings groups (owned and operated by
the communities themselves) are now filling the gap - providing affordable and relevant
financial services to the most underserved.
