Smart & Savvy Women (SSW) is a fashion industry, export and business development service company; with integrated TV Production services. The company was founded to help minimise the challenges that export-driven Small & Medium Enterprises face in securing financing to start or rapidly grow their fashion export businesses.Trade Finance and other innovative financing instruments play a key role in financing trade. Typically, SMEs need financing to overcome trade-related issues ranging from the difficult, time consuming & expensive process of understanding the export journey, the associated international trade rules and new market customer quality & standards. In essence, limited access to finance, inhibits SME participation in global trade, and is, therefore, experienced as the number one barrier to inclusive trade. At SSW, we promote access to finance as the most fundamental, sustainable, and competitive driver, in helping export-driven SMEs access international markets and integrate in the global fashion value chain.
To contribute to the growth and quality of SME fashion export businesses through improved access to finance, increased financial knowledge and improved international business acumen.
