Managing and arranging the working capital finance may be a bit challenging for SMBs. Many great companies struggle in acquiring finance for their endeavors.
The struggle becomes fiercer due to reasons such as the banks becoming more reluctant towards business to provide business overdrafts rather preferring to offer more expensive products or withdraw credit altogether.
The second reason was the businesses were finding it difficult to present their Business Financial Information in a way that maximized the chance for building a successful application for credit.
Considering all such issues, as an alternative to bank overdrafts, Growth Street offers a revolving credit facility for the companies. Growth Street allows companies to access capital as per their requirements, repay as they wish and flexible enough to let them only pay interest for what and when they borrowed.
