The closest most Kenyans come in contact with the banks is when they want to withdraw some cash, deposit some cash or looking for a loan.
Not very many Kenyans know about asset finance. And the few who have heard about it don’t know how to go about it.
What is asset finance?
Asset finance refers to a type of lending that gives one access to business assets such as equipment, machinery, and vehicles or enables one to release cash from the value in assets they already own. In simple terms, asset finance can either help you get an asset or get money out of an asset.
Say you want to own a car but do not have what it takes to purchase the car of your dreams. You can approach a bank that offers the asset finance product and they can help in footing part of the expense which you will pay later. Also, if you have a car, say you are a company that runs a transport business and would like to get a loan from the bank, the easiest way is to use the ‘assets’, in this case, the cars, as security to get a loan from a bank.
According to financial analysts, the easiest way to get a loan from a bank is through asset finance.
“It is easier as compared to other traditional loans. If someone walked into a bank with a log book and you with just papers to fill in order to get a loan, the man with the log book will walk out smiling,” said Steve Biko Wafula, a financial analyst, and researcher. “It is also the fastest way to get some urgent cash.” He added.
