Refinancing Success

Recently a merchant took out a cash advance that carried a 6-month term. Due to the short time frame for repayment, the advance was hurting his monthly cash flow. The merchant chose to pay off his cash advance with a loan from ARF Financial which came with an 18-month term. Extending the term, combined with ARF’s lower interest rates, allowed the merchant to significantly reduce his monthly payments resulting in substantial savings.
