    A few words from some of our happy clients.

    Chloride Zimbabwe

    Without African Century assisting us with the financing of the forklifts and pick-up trucks we would not have been able to achieve over 50% increase in revenues per month. We would highly recommend them to help out with your business financing needs.

    Lobels Bread

    With the acquisition of 15 delivery trucks in November 2013 Lobels managed to do away with hiring delivery trucks which was an expensive and sometimes unreliable exercise. The 15 trucks played a very crucial role in bringing back the organisation to its previous market position, thank you ACL for believing in us!

    Nick Motors Private

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the Team at ACL for believing in Nick's Motors, in our short term and long terms plans and in the way we conduct our business. Our turnover, cash flow, and profitability is growing month by month as we inject new units into our fleet.

    Sherwood Park

    With the help from African Century we have now ventured in Paprika production. We hope Paprika will be the future of our business and have great plans as we have a secure market and offtake agreements.
