About Us

A legacy of helping others become self-sufficient.

Sydney Capital began as a means to make micro loans to those who were not bankable. We made loans to formerly incarcerated non-violent offenders, people who just had bad things happen in life, and former homeless folks on the mend with good ideas and a small market to serve. Our loans ranged from $1,000 to $25,000 and were for various small ventures: car wash, detail shop to clean cars, small used car dealership, landscaping and lawn care, a painting contractor, the dream of a studio for a would-be rap producer which was high risk high yield, and more. About 35% of these projects succeeded. Sydney Capital did not seek equity but only return of principal and interest. In hindsight with Lessons Learned, we believe a much larger percentage would have succeeded had we controlled the cash-flow, instead of naively making unsecured bets alone.

We are currently involved in coffee, whiskey, cigars, and energy drinks; including some export from Europe and import to Uganda.
