Finance Leasing

In an effort to ensure that market has access to a range of financial mechanisms the Liberia National Investment Commission (NIC) in partnership with the Central Bank of Liberia has introduced finance leasing into the Liberian market.

Presently, there is one newly established non-bank leasing company in Liberia. M&E Leasing Limited is an independent leasing company (non-bank lessor). M&E made an initial capital investment of USD $500,000.00. The company was inaugurated on June 2, 2014. In 2008, the potential market opportunity for leasing in Liberia was projected to be between USD $30 Million and USD $88 Million.

The market is expected to increase over time due to the country’s growing equipment needs in agriculture, construction, mining, and other sectors of the economy.
