How the Referral Program Works


We give you a variety of ways to refer businesses who need funding

Use embedded forms, direct (tracked) links, media and/or digital assets that give your clients context about who we are, and what we do.

We manage the application process

Once they've applied, we manage the entire funding process - from finding them their best partner, answering their questions, to getting documentation and information.

Get feedback and updates from the Partner Portal

Stay informed throughout the entire process through your own dashboard that tracks your referrals.

We pay you!

When your referred business successfully completes their loan application, we pay you commission. Depending on your Partner Level, that can be as much as 2% of the loan amount.

Partner with us, submit your details and our team will be in touch

Partner Program FAQ's

How long does the application process take?

Typically, an application takes 5 minutes. If you have all your information at hand, it can go quicker.
Remember, the more information you provide the better we will be able to help.

How long does it take to be approved?

The approval process depends entirely on documentation.
In an application, you provide information about your business that then needs to be verified by the appropriate documentation.
If you have your documents ready (sometimes all that is required is 6 months bank statements), applications can be approved in as little as 24 hours.

Does my business qualify?

Different types of loans have different qualification criteria.
At minimum, to qualify for any loan your business should meet the following criteria:
  1. Monthly turnover (revenue) in excess of R35 000 per month.
  2. You have been earning revenue for at least 6 months.
  3. You have a registered business (Sole proprietors are accepted).

Do you fund startups?

At this time, unfortunately not. Please see minimum qualifying criteria above.

What type of lenders do you work with?

FundingHub only works with lenders that we would borrow money from ourselves.
Our suite of lenders is chosen to make sure that we cover the full range of funding types (so we can help majority of business-types), as well as the full range of business maturity (so we can help the majority of businesses, no matter how established or not).

How much does a loan typically cost?

The cost of a loan depends on a few elements, the most important of which are:
  • The risk factor of your business.
  • The type of loan.
To this end, interest rates on loans can range from 0.8% per month (7.6% annual interest rate) through to 30% per year.

How long are the loan periods?

Greetings, Exalted One. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight and friend to Captain Solo. I know that you are powerful, mighty Jabba, and that your anger with Solo must be equally powerful. I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo's life. With your wisdom, I'm sure that we can work out an arrangement which will be mutually beneficial and enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontation.

What documents are required for a loan application?

This depends entirely on the type of loan you are looking for.
In general, the loan period for Unsecured loans is short term (less than 2 years).
For secured loans, the repayment period is longer - up to 10 years.

Will an application with FundingHub affect my credit score?

No. FundingHub does not pull credit scores when you apply, and therefore your credit score will not be affected.
In the event that this changes, we will always ask you directly if we can do a credit score on your business or any directors.
Note: FundingHub's lending partners may need to pull a credit score, but they will only do this with your explicit permission too.
