Here are 3 recent stories we had to share:
1. Natalie Buttini (Sole Trader)
Natalie does an amazing job for the community, helping people with disabilities get to and from home, school and activities.
Natalie's car was on its last legs, and without an upgrade she wouldn’t have been able to continue making such a positive difference in our community.
Luckily, our wonderful product specialist, Lucy, was able to help her secure $15,000. Now, Natalie’s back on the road doing what she loves most.
Loan type: Chattel Mortgage Amount borrowed: $15,000 Used for: New car
2. Vicky Mezzapesa - Pop Gaming
Vicky, owner of Pop Gaming, recently came to us with a vision to expand her family entertainment centre, based in Gisborne, Victoria. Pop Gaming is inspired by fond memories of family outings that always seemed to wind up at the local gaming arcade!
Vicky requested finance to invest in new machines that would enhance to her customers' gaming experience. After consulting with our talented product specialist, Luke, she decided on a loan amount of 50k—enough to invest in essential revenue-generating machines, while allowing her to comfortably pay off her loan.
The 50k was not an easy win, but with Luke’s careful workshopping and negotiation, they made it over the line and Vicky was able to take ownership of her company’s equipment. She’s also very much looking forward to expanding Pop Gaming’s offering over the next two years.
Just after we settled Vicky’s loan, she dropped us a note to say:
“Thank you for believing in me and just giving me that push.”
Loan type: Commercial Lease Amount borrowed: $50,000 Used for: Expanding product range
3. Dionne Goyen - Generator Personal Training
Our client, Dionne, owns a Crossfit gym! She needed finance to repay vendors and upgrade her gym’s equipment. Getting a ‘yes’ from her lender wasn’t an easy feat, and Dionne was referred to us after struggling to get her application over the line.
Dionne got in touch with our amazing product specialist, Karlo, and Working Capital Manager, Nicki, and together they were able to negotiate with our lending partners to secure a total of $30,000 with a two-year term and great rate.
“This was a seamless experience… My repayments and loan term are very affordable, and has relieved a lot of stress in finding a way to keep moving my business forward.”
