On 29th July, small business lender Prospa has announced record-breaking Q4FY22 results, with revenue reaching $53.9 million (up 61% from Q4FY21). This record coincides with the company’s 10-year anniversary which took place last month.
The company attributes this growth to significantly higher demand for funds from small businesses across Australia and New Zealand, with its active customer base increasing by 34%
Prospa Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Moshal said the demand for funding reflects the tenacity and confidence of Aussie SMBs to overcome tough market conditions.
“Aussie small business owners are accessing funds to manage challenges such as supply chain disruptions, inflation and higher input costs. They’re also investing in diversification to ensure they’re able to adapt and thrive in challenging market conditions.”
Prospa’s customers across Australia and New Zealand have seen an average revenue increase of more than 12% in the last 12 months (June 21 to June 22).
“We’ve been keeping small businesses going for 10 years. It gives us great satisfaction to know that our funding solutions are supporting small business owners to achieve their business goals,” Mr Moshal added.
Founder and CEO of the Laundry Lady Susan Toft said over the last 18 months she’s grown from eight contractors to 80 with the support of Prospa financing: “I can draw on the line of credit, pay my contractors, then put the money back the following week if I need to.”
