Our name “Yalu” is short for the Zulu term isiyalu - the source of a river.

Yalu was born out of our passion to nourish and bring life to the world of credit life insurance.

We aim to become the source of knowledge and change that enables customers to know better and arm themselves with the tools to make better credit life insurance choices.

Our Commitment

We are committed to financially empowering our customers and communities; which is why we place focus and effort on educating them about credit life insurance.


Our goal of delivering true value for money is evident in the transparency of the products, the simplicity of the processes and fairness in the pricing.

Simply put, we believe in doing right by our customers. By making credit life insurance easy to understand, ensuring that you pay what is fair and rewarding you when you settle your debt, we are changing the face of credit life insurance for your benefit.

And of course, we’ve made switching your policy absolutely hassle free - anytime, anywhere, at your fingertips...

What Is Credit Life Insurance?

Whether you call it credit life or debt protection, credit life insurance protects you and the people you love from having to pay your debt,

should you find yourself in an out-of-your-control situation that makes it impossible for you to continue paying.

To be more specific, credit life insurance pays your debt either as a lump sum or in instalments to your credit provider (subject to that policy’s rules) should you:


Become disabled
(temporarily or permanently)


Get retrenched from work
(if you are permanently employed)


Pass away
