Ruya (pronounced “Ruo-yah” means “Vision” in Arabic) was established with the mission of providing flexible funding solutions to private sector companies in developing markets where traditional financing markets leave a significant funding gap, particularly in the small to medium-sized enterprise segment. This segment is vital for the regional economies and plays an essential role in achieving GDP growth, diversification and advancing the goals of regional socio-economic agendas. We provide bespoke funding solutions to this segment while delivering our investors a superior risk-adjusted return with regular current income.
