Aquila's core business consists of financial leasing targeting SMEs and consumers (individuals, professionals, traders/craftsmen) in specific sectors for which Aquila developed a particular marketing positioning. In addition, Aquila provides short term working capital financing (less than one year) to SMEs and private professionals.

Aquila Capital started its operations mid-2005 as a non-bank financial institution providing financial leasing solutions and asset management services to SMEs and individuals.

BIOs long term debt financing (USD 5 million) will help Aquila Leasing in reaching a critical size and becoming the new leader in the market, thus improving confidence from local banks and local private investors.
