The Little Gym Franchisee Secures SBA Loan Through BoeFly
By: BoeFly, LLC
“Amy is smart, capable and hard working,” said Brett, “and she was an incredibly well prepared small business loan applicant. It was an easy decision for us at Stearns Bank to decide to issue Amy a 7(a) loan for her startup The Little Gym franchise.”
Amy didn’t know which banks would be interested or willing to extend a business loan to her for her The Little Gym franchise and was therefore excited by the opportunity to harness the technology of BoeFly to do that work for her. She uploaded all of the necessary documents in one day and had a loan proposal from Stearns bank within a week.
“BoeFly was truly a great experience,”
The Little Gym provides BoeFly’s loan packaging service to both its existing and prospective franchisees at a discount. BoeFly’s proprietary technology then matches these existing and prospective franchisees with lenders based on lender loan package and credit preferences. BoeFly reduces the time, cost, and frustration associated with small business lending by allowing users to post a single, bank-ready financing request on BoeFly’s online marketplace that will reach potential lenders throughout the country who may be interested in financing the deal.
“BoeFly is an incredibly valuable resource for our franchisees to secure the financing they need quickly and efficiently,”
“The process of going bank to bank to look for financing is antiquated and inefficient,”
