Introducing Business Credit & Risk Information (BUSCRI): Empowering Businesses with Financial Access

One of the primary challenges hindering business growth in South Africa is gaining access to crucial financing, especially for start-up entities. While funds may be available, obtaining the required finance often proves difficult, predominantly due to insufficient information on businesses for credit providers to evaluate affordability and creditworthiness.

SACRRA, leveraging our vast data-sharing infrastructure and partnering with existing members, associations and industry bodies, aims to bridge this gap by facilitating seamless business data collection and dissemination. This initiative unlocks expanded market opportunities for our valued members while learning from past and current data-sharing experiences to expedite the implementation of robust data-sharing environments for businesses of all sizes.
