Want to know what really sets us apart from all the other lenders you work with? It’s the way we define “creditworthiness.”

Because we look at a variety of factors, instead of just a business owner’s credit score, we’re able to more accurately assess risk and offer your clients a loan with terms that will actually help their business thrive.

For the first time ever, we’re giving our partners a detailed breakdown of the factors we consider when evaluating your apps. Download the secrets of our credit model.
