Mtaji Technologies

About Us

Mtaji Technologies is an Africa-focused FinTech seeking to democratize access to working capital for Small and Medium Enterprises through the Ankara Platform – the unique Marketplace for digital credit for African SMEs.

Ankara is a unique and innovative marketplace that addresses the needs of all Supply Chain parties, guaranteeing long-term sustainability. Based on a 3-sided marketplace model, Ankara “curves out” different funding programs for different parties, creating seamless credit capacity from different funding sources including banks, DFIs, impact investors, trade finance funds, and pension funds. The platform’s proprietary credit scoring algorithm ensures that any party on the platform can access funding at the touch of a button. This algorithm is based on the unique SME blended scoring logic.

The platform’s ‘holy grail’ of the physical and financial supply chain supports event-triggered financial services along the supply chain, such as PO financing, Invoice financing, and distributor financing, providing full transparency into each transaction. The platform solutions are based on the definition by the Global Supply Chain Finance Forum (GSCFF), including Receivables-based and Loan-based products.

Our comprehensive solution further utilizes embedded b2b payments module to enable users to send and receive funds through their digital wallets.

Mtaji is committed to delivering the best possible user experience and is constantly improving the Ankara platform to meet the evolving needs of our customers. Join us today and experience the power of Mtaji!
