The company was established in 2019 with a mere N$250 000 equity capital from shareholders. To date, Bellatrix has disbursed over 700 procurement-based loans to MSMEs. This growth is synonymous with the name Bellatrix, the third brightest star in the constellation of Orion in the night sky. The name echoed Bellatrix’s mission of becoming the nation’s largest and preferred financial service provider for MSMEs and Startups.
