Why a Business Line of Credit?
Lends Well and our network of partner lenders are here to help you find the financing your business needs to succeed. Business lines of credit are incredibly flexible as you can draw out funds when you need to, and only pay interest for the money you borrow. As you repay what you have drawn, your line of credit will be replenished and can be tapped again.
A business line of credit can be a good option for business owners who want to keep funds on reserve to cover the slow season or unexpected expenses, without having to break the bank.
Since 2011, Lends Well & Partners has helped businesses in over 700 industries access the capital they need.
Over $10 billion lent to 50,000 small businesses globally.
