The vision of the National Empowerment Fund (NEF) is to become the leading provider of innovative transformation solutions for an economically inclusive South Africa.
The NEF is a driver and thought leader in promoting and facilitating black economic participation by providing financial and non-financial support to black-empowered businesses, and by promoting a culture of savings and investment among black people.
In pursuit of its mandate, the NEF provides financial and non-financial support. Financial support is comprised of the provision of innovative financing products to black-empowered businesses via five funds: the uMnotho, iMbewu, Rural and Community Development, Strategic Projects, and Women Empowerment Funds. Non-Financial support provided includes the following services: pre-investment support;
post-investment support; turnaround, workouts and restructures; and
socio-economic development and asset management.
