Who are we

Azora Finance (“Azora”) is a fresh face in Australian Financial services, however we previously operated as Little Lease Company and Wholesale Rental Finance for over 40 years.

We see technology as a means to deliver fast, flexible finance while applying responsible lending standards to provide you with the best fit financial product for your business circumstances.

Our motto of “lean on us” defines what we’re all about, giving you access to competitive finance to meet your immediate needs. 

Whether you’re a small business owner looking to fund new or used business critical equipment, a rental business looking for wholesale finance or someone tired of being given the run around by banks, Azora is here to help at precisely the time you want a SME loan to fund your business needs. 

Our success is measured by your success in getting access to credit when you need it.

Our Mission

To improve the lives of small business owners by providing fast, flexible lending solutions which empower them to achieve their dreams and aspirations, when the finance is most needed.

What we stand for

Inspired by our motto "lean on us", we put you (our customers) at the centre of everything we do.

We are supportive

You can lean on us when you most need financial support to achieve your business goals.  We understand the stresses and strains of everyday life.  We’re approachable, empathetic and non-judgemental.  We believe that debt, used responsibly, can deliver positive business outcomes.

We are transparent

We’re transparent, honest and accountable.  You can trust us to give you a fair go and be truthful about whether or not we can help you.  We’re here to help; we want to help, but we’ll be straight up if we can’t.  There will be no hidden surprises.

We offer fair value

What we promise is fast, flexible finance delivered when its needed most by our customers.  We deliver loan products which cater to the needs of your small business, recognising they don’t always neatly fit in a homogenous box.  In return, we offer fair and competitive risk-based pricing.

Proudly supporting The #Salvos

The Salvation Army is the embodiment of hope and opportunity for all Australians. At Azora, we share a common mission. As corporate partners, our relationship is one built on shared values and a profound dedication of giving to those who are in genuine need or experiencing hardship and injustice - irrespective of their demographic. We are passionate about supporting The Salvation Army’s ongoing committment to delivering real outcomes which change lives for the better. 

Azora has recently helped raise $60,000 for The #Salvos Red Shield Appeal, further highlighting our long-term commitment and unwavering support of the cause.
