We are a compassionate lender. The 5 C's of Financing allow us to be more flexible with our funding than traditional lenders. In fact, 99% of our clients are business owners who are ineligible for commercial bank loans at this time. That means they've been turned down by a bank, but still have the capacity to meet our "5C's" criteria.
