Frequently Asked Questions

What is sawa?

Our team hails from Amazon, Uber, Stripe, AWS, MaxAB, and more insanely successful tech companies. We’re bullish on the exponential growth of ecommerce in the Middle East region, and are on a mission to help e-commerce brands scale sustainably and successfully. “Sawa” is Arabic for together. As such, we aim to be the platform where brands go to grow: grow their inventory and marketing spend through sawa financing, grow their revenues through sawa’s performance marketing expertise, and grow their presence across geographies and channels.

How do I know if sawa's solution is for my brand?

If you are an ecommerce brand that faces one or more of the issues below:

- I need to grow my inventory and marketing investment, but don’t have access to the required capital
- I need support in optimizing my ad spend and testing new marketing channels
- I want to expand beyond my current geographic market, but not sure where to start

You don’t have to be selling 100% online. Even if you are selling offline and looking for support in one or more of the above listed areas, we’re ready to help!

Why should I opt for financing my inventory and marketing with sawa?
