“While SBA Disaster Loans are usually processed quickly, small business owners may have immediate cash needs to pay for recovery costs, normal working capital, and payroll.  There are many lenders who are willing to grant loan requests almost instantaneously,” said Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit and one of the nation’s leading experts in small business lending.

Additionally, a number of lenders that specialize in rapid approvals of funding requests, such as merchant cash advance companies and factors, have agreed to waive their first month’s payment to borrowers who work through Biz2Credit.

“Many small business owners don’t have the wherewithal to argue with their insurance companies over what is covered, nor do they have a lot of time to wait for their claims to be processed.  Those who need money quickly can get it from the lenders in the Biz2Credit network,” Arora added.
