We invite all interested project owners and investors to our project financing programme
I am the investment officer and we are ready to fund projects in the form of debt finance.
We grant loans to both Corporate and private entities at a low interest rate of 2.5% ROI per annum.
The terms are very flexible and interesting.
Kindly revert back if you have projects that need funding for further discussion and negotiation.
