One of the four pillars of financial health includes the ability to borrow. Effective borrowing requires incurring a manageable level of debt so that you can repay it on time. Timely payments improve your credit score, increasing your future borrowing potential and possibly saving you money through a lower interest rate. Simple, right? Well, what happens if your business cashflows aren’t predictable or your business is seasonal or operates within short-term windows of time? Ascendus created a line of credit offer to address these issues, and Annie’s story below highlights the transformative impact of this new product. The need is sometimes even more significant, such as the complete market absence of affordable capital. On this front, we celebrate our 20 year anniversary of serving Floridian businesses. Whether through new products or geographical expansion, Ascendus continually innovates to impact the lives of the business owners we serve positively.
Yours in innovation,
Annie’s Line of Credit: My Business is the Strongest It’s Ever Been
“The Ascendus loan helped further me and allowed me to grow. Since the Line of Credit, my business is the strongest it’s ever been.” Annie’s Line of Credit came just in time, without it she wouldn’t have had the funds to cater a high-profile event that changed the trajectory of her small business. Since then, Annie’s business has grown exponentially. She has grown her staff to four team members, stopped working additional jobs, and gotten her bachelor’s.
