Due to the pandemic, a number of small businesses had to close their doors. Some entrepreneurs have started a new business. But start-ups and small businesses are often at a disadvantage when it comes to conventional lending. A business needs capital to develop its product, but the bank needs to see a product to approve the business capital. The Recovery RLF is designed to provide help where conventional lending may fall short.
The Recovery RLF also satisfies conventional lenders by offering gap financing. Our loan fund makes up the difference between a business loan request and a lender’s threshold.
