    Construct Your Business Future with VodaLend

    Whether you need to fund moving into a bigger office, buy equipment or property or just to get the cash flow you need to act quickly, we can make it happen.

    The construction industry is an innovative space to be in right now. There’s the growing use of efficiency improving technology tools such as drones and augmented reality, as well as new building information tech and construction management software. Housing trends are changing too, with people looking towards modular and pre-fabricated buildings and of course, green construction, looking to lower carbon footprints and search for more energy-efficient building materials.

    Scaling with a Bridging Loan

    Not only is the industry poised for exciting transformation, everyday construction such as roads and bridges literally keep us going from A to B, expanding networks which are integral to the growth of the country. And in South Africa we have such inspiring architectural trends, blending culture with functionality and new housing developments promoting community and fostering security. Now is the time to be bold if you’re in construction, focusing on ingenious ways to scale your business and taking advantage of a loan from VodaLend to bridge gaps in cash flow.

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Growth over the next eight quarters, in the residential, commercial, industrial and institutional sectors of South Africa, will remain disrupted. However, our medium to long term outlook for the construction industry remains buoyant and is expected to record a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.2% to reach ZAR 286.2 billion by 2024. (Research and Markets). The current industry buzzword is “cautiously optimistic.”

    Survival of the Early Adaptors

    Survival and growth will be based on the determination to quickly adapt to changes in the market and the economy. The pandemic has seen unprecedented speed happen with new ways of working, quick changes in customer needs and radically disrupted supply chains. The only way to survive is to be agile.  Says Quinton van Vuuren, Vodacom Financial Services Executive responsible for VodaLend: 'Businesses most likely to survive these turbulent times are those quickest to adapt.'

    Building Sustainability with the Best Funding Partner

    At VodaLend we’re aware of the unforeseen costs incurred during downtime, adhering to construction site containment, the cleaning and disinfecting of construction workspaces and the difficulty finding the right PPE equipment, and even then at often inflated prices.
