About us

Moula is a better way to borrow money to grow your business. Once upon a time, getting a business loan meant spending 6-8 weeks filling in forms and then waiting around for approval. With Moula, you can apply online with no paperwork and no hassle and have the funds in your account the next day.

We’ve developed a unique platform that will analyse a business’ data, making the process simple, fast, and friendly. But we’re not just a smart algorithm; we’re all about human interaction, which is why we have a team of real people who will get to know each business’ unique needs.
