ABOUT THE COMPANY
The company had over 13 years of experience in the construction sector. After a long career in commercial construction including housing, malls and offices, they wanted to venture into a larger project. The project involved rebuilding or reconstructing the road network in a city to accommodate the increased number of cars and pedestrian traffic.
While the company had almost everything charted out, they lacked backing from a reliable investor. They had a tight budget and were looking for soft loans to fund their project. This is when they contacted us looking for soft loans from foreign investors.
As is first with every project we accept, we thoroughly researched the plan to deduce the foreign direct investment availability. We mapped the entry routes and any complications the project may face in the future. The challenge for us was to guide the entire project through the lengthy process of foreign direct investment without incurring major difficulties.
We helped the company connect with a foreign investor who was interested in their proposal.
