Helping many UK businesses through card machine funding

The History

Founded in 2014, Merchant Loan Advance was conceived as a business idea due to the frustration many business owners faced when applying for traditional finance.

The high street banks were not moving with the times, and their funding products were out of touch with modern, progressive business owners. Slow application processes, tight terms, excessive repayment rates and strict eligibility criteria meant that many business owners needed to find other options after being declined by their bank.

The alternative business finance market was taking shape, and more alternative lenders were entering the space. The Merchant Cash Advance is one such product specific to those businesses who accept card payments from their customers. It is a true ‘flexible’ business loan on the market due to its versatile repayment mechanism.

In our first year the business feedback was fantastic from customers who were genuinely impressed with how it worked for them, and, this is still the same today with positive feedback from many customers.
