SANTA ANA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 15, 2020 – The world has changed for small business owners. And the world has changed for business lenders as well!! It started with the Great Recession in 2008 when overnight, the small business lending landscape changed significantly due to conventional banks tightening their lending and underwriting guidelines. This led to the expansion of alternative options like Merchant Cash Advance loans. This type of financing filled the void in the market and was very attractive to business owners due to online applications, same-day business funding, and the fact that little documentation was needed. The Fintech industry has continued to serve as a primary source of business funding and can be a valuable resource for many small business owners. Unfortunately, many business owners did not understand all the risks involved in this type of financing and got in over their head. In order to make payments to their existing lenders, they soon found themselves taking out other loans to pay the first one, an industry practice referred to as “stacking.” This creates a snowball effect that often leads to the business defaulting and unable to pay back the MCA lender.
The COVID 19 crisis and lockdown has exacerbated the situation not just for small business owners but also for cash advance lenders. Business owners who could always afford their debt service find their revenues cut in half. Business owners who could always “borrow” their way out of debt no longer qualify for financing due to industry restrictions or shut down orders. Defaults on unsecured business loans are soaring, and it is rapidly becoming a crisis because of the position this puts the lenders in. Lenders have outstanding contracts for regular payments on the advance of future receivables they issued, but the money is not coming in because of the economic crisis. Some lenders have gone out of business; others have been sold or partnered with other companies to survive. In this uncertain time for small business owners and lenders, National Credit Partners can help.
