As someone who is in the florist business, you know what it takes to grow a seed into a flower or a plant. It takes time, effort, and investments in vitamins, the right kind of water and soil. Growing a business is basically the same thing. The difference is you will need more capital.
This is especially true during the slow months where demand for flowers is quite low. You can use this period to improve your store, train your staff, or purchase new inventory. If you want to borrow money to fund your projects, don’t go to the bank.
Many commercial lenders will offer both fixed and flexible loan solutions. If qualified, you can borrow up to £240,000 in funds. Flexible loan plans will allow you to customise your payment according to your cash flow. However, if you prefer scheduled payments, avail of the fixed loan programme. Fill out an application online and within a few minutes, you will receive a no-obligation quotation on how much you can borrow. Once your application checks out, you can receive the funding within 24 hours.
