Bank lending needs often come at a time when Canadian business owners and financial
managers are not necessarily 100% in control of all the forces that might affect their
business - external and otherwise. A business finance alternative might also be a solution
for almost any business in any industry. Let's dig in.
hose same financing needs! as we've ex"lained in the "ast come in different timelines!
short! intermediate and long term. #ne of those external sources that many business
owners forget is their vendors and su""liers.
$ere collateral is not re%uired! trade credit is &'C$ easier to obtain and in many cases
discounts for "rom"t "ayment may be offered and ta(en. )aturally stretching "ayables is

"ro"erly.

do in fact offer ' unsecured' loans these are totally focused on... you guessed it... "rovable
cash flow.
