Under the Ezdaher brand, AVANA will provide its new small business lending platform, LendThrive ™, as well as an alternative investment marketplace for individual investors called EqualSeat ™. AVANA Companies had its regional CCG headquarters in Bahrain over the past 13 years with additional offices in India and The Philippines. The company recently recruited five new employees and leased additional office space at Bahrain with the intention of hiring at least 12 new people between Bahrain and KSA in the next 6 to 12 months.
“AVANA Companies is pleased to continue its global expansion with the mission of providing ESG lending and investment opportunities to those in the Middle East, as well as new products and services in the market, ”said Sundip patel, CEO of AVANA companies.
Patel spends half of his time at Bahrain and oversee the expansion in the region with the Commercial Director, Andris Rozenbahs. Rozenbahs is based at Bahrain and brings a wealth of knowledge and more than 10 years of experience in the FinTech start-up environment, having previously founded several companies in the space.
“I am very happy to be a leader in the growth of AVANA companies in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain and we look forward to helping launch Ezdaher’s LendThrive ™ and EqualSeat ™ as a standout FinTech product with an underlying mission and a commitment to building stronger communities in this region, ”said Rozenbahs.
Rozenbahs will oversee the two Ezdaher units, LendThrive ™ and EqualSeat ™, to ensure that they follow AVANA’s mission to be ESG (environment, social and governance) focused FinTech platforms that positively contribute to the social and environmental impact.
LendThrive ™, a new online lending platform designed to help small businesses that meet ESG standards, supports business owners with its rate reduction rewards program and helps them thrive while boosting local economies . LendThrive ™ focuses on underserved businesses in industries such as hospitality, construction and renewable energy.
EqualSeat ™, which began beta testing in 2021, is an investment marketplace with ESG investment opportunities that provides retail investors with fractional access to institutional grade commercial debt investments.
While other global financial companies may have struggled during the pandemic, AVANA was able to remain strong for its employees without demotions or pay cuts. They were able to hire additional labor and continued to add more services, while other businesses were forced to shut down. AVANA Companies recently completed two acquisitions – Extensia Financial, focused on credit unions and an FDIC bank in Texas, United States.
