Funding your Manufacturing Company with a Bridge Loan
Opportunities are plentiful right now for manufacturing companies. If you are experiencing strong growth but your bank is struggling to keep up with your funding needs, we have a solution. ARF has a loan product that provides ‘bridge’ or ‘gap’ financing so you can proceed with your growth plans while you work with your bank to secure traditional funding sources such as an SBA loan. A Bridge Loan is a financial product that functions as a short-term amortizing loan to support projects or investments that are expected to generate returns. Small businesses like manufacturing companies, particularly in their early phases, frequently see the chance for extreme growth, but often on the other side of a financial hurdle. Bridge Loans are an ideal financial solution to open the door to new opportunities.
SBA Loans for Manufacturing Companies
These loans are notoriously difficult to get approved. And if they are approved, they take three to four months of application process before a final approval is issued and the loan then funded. ARF Financial can you approved for manufacturing company financing in 24-48 hours and your loan can fund in 3-5 days. If you are in the process for SBA loans and urgently need to take advantage of a business opportunity, our Bride Loans are perfect to help you capitalize on growth opportunities while waiting on your SBA approval.
Merchant Cash Advance
ARF Financial is not a cash advance company. We offer real bank loans with low, fixed terms for those who qualify with the only difference being we can fund our loans much faster than a traditional bank. While cash advance help manufacturing company owners with quick cash, this alternative form of financing has a different loan structure which is expensive with based on the store’s daily credit card receipts. This means, if the store’s sales increases then the daily payment to the merchant cash advance company also increases escalating the interest rate while ensuring the cash advance company is paid sooner. Unlike a cash advance, manufacturing company financing from ARF Financial allows a business owner to keep the additional profit generated from their hard work!
If you are a manufacturing company owner looking for financing for your business, we can help you get a business loan fast without collateral and with limited paperwork. That means the interest is tax deductible, rates are fixed, and you know the terms ahead of time.
