Meet Yongama

CEO, Founder, CA(SA)

The company helps businesses and individuals on their operational and financial needs by, providing corporate financial and advisory services that are customised, scaled and aligned to customer specific needs.

The company was established in 2014 with a goal to provide a finance consulting hub that caters to small and medium size businesses (SMME) due to their importance in our economic growth. The financial support gap in this sector is because of lack of knowledge of corporate governance, laws and regulations. It also rises from increase in the number of SMME’s as government encourages support of SMME for unemployment and economic growth purposes. Lastly, SMME’s tend to be owner managed and owners focus on operations and not support functions, hence the need for financial support function.
