Better Way to create Impact in Africa

We enable a global investor base which emphasizes social objectives beyond an attractive investment yield. Our success is based on strong local roots, technological innovation, and employable skill building programs.

What We Do

What We Do
Simple Access to Affordable Financing
Monetix originated from the founders’ ambition to level the playing field for entrepreneurs in emerging markets and provide easy access to affordable financing. Restricted access to working capital is the single biggest limiting factor for local businesses. Leveraging decades of experience in cross-border payments and investments and a passion for cutting-edge financial technology built the foundation of what is today Uganda’s quickest way to access affordable capital.
Education and Employable Skill building
Monetix together with its local partner CapitalSavvy provides free-of-charge education and training to its target audience. These educational efforts focus on basic business practices such as bookkeeping and invoicing as well as entrepreneurship and practical-oriented programming skills. For the latter Monetix sources partners from its network, including incubator programs, technology trainers, and ask-me-anything sessions with established tech entrepreneurs

About Us

Monetix is the First-Mover of Holistic Business Growth Advocacy!
Having worked many years in the cross-border investment space and financial industry the co-founders of Monetix committed to building a trusted bridge between two worlds:

One world where access to capital is easy, interest rates are low and investors eagerly look for investment opportunities with yield and social impact.

The other world is a reality where opportunities are manyfold but cannot be taken on because capital is rare, expensive and hard to access. Yields are great and the impact is measurable and visible.

There are many worlds but we all live on the same planet. Technology allows us to bridge those worlds and allows capital to flow where it is most effectively used with the highest impact. With decades of experience and a strong local network, this journey has been both rewarding and satisfying in many ways.

Founder Message
Uganda - the Pearl of Africa - is full of talent. 'Overskilled but underfunded' is a common statement from international development organizations. Monetix shares this experience. Over the last 12 months, Monetix has supported many entrepreneurs and SMEs with funding. Moreover, we trained company owners for free to professionalize their operations. We want to share some of our personal experiences with this report. Working in this part of the world is both rewarding and adventurous. We all live on the same planet. However, there are still different worlds. Monetix aims to level the playing field and provide every entrepreneur with a fair chance.
Over the next 12 months, Monetix is going to issue a bond in order to grow its loan book in Uganda. Moreover, we are going to release the first-ever credit rating system for SME companies. This will propel the SME sector to the next level and allow other financers to join us in growing prosperity in this promising country. We invite you to join us on our journey.
