- Argon Credit (, a technology company that offers consumer loans between $500 and $20,000 to prime and near-prime customers, today announced the offering of a $5 million round of debt funding to accelerate the growth of its innovative product offering. Argon Credit will use the investment capital to fund the high speed growth of its loan portfolio.

“Argon Credit fills the void in consumer loans left by the national banks by deploying a unique technology platform designed to provide the best possible loans for customers with near perfect credit,” says Gary Zumski, co-founder and Chief Risk Officer of Argon Credit. “This funding will allow us to enhance our loan portfolio and increase the number of U.S. households we can assist.”

“We backed Argon Credit and have taken a managerial interest because of the experience and dedication of the team and are amazed at the pace of growth” says Raviv Wolfe, Managing Director of America One Capital who provided the initial seed funding for Argon Credit.
