Peulwana Agricultural Finance is a brainchild of the late Mrs Mantombi Msimang and Dr Ramunus Monji. Both Mrs Msimang and Dr Monji had spent years working in the rural, agricultural, as well as entrepreneurial development sectors. In 2009 Peulwana Agricultural Finance was established as a vehicle that operates under the Micro-Agricultural Finance Institutions of South Africa to provide financial support to the emerging farmers.
The company was born out of a realisation that true mass economic emancipation cannot happen without the development of the emerging farmer thereby transforming the rural communities and the emerging farmer into the mainstream of the economy.
Peulwana is committed to be the leading financial intermediary that provides affordable agribusiness finance to small-scale farmers as well as non-financial support. Our competitive advantage is that we understand the space that the emerging farmers operate in.
Over the past 8 years, Peulwana has supported more than 300 emerging farmers. We have given support to farmers in KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, North West, Gauteng, Free State, and Northern Cape.
Peulwana is supported by the National Department of Agriculture.
