Humaneyezed turns to Lendio after experiencing frustrations with getting business loans, and received funding offers within minutes

SALT LAKE CITY — After experiencing frustration with getting small business loans, Jake Fackrell turned to Lendio and secured funding within in a couple weeks.

“First we went to banks and it just felt like there were a lot of hoops to jump through, and no result,” said Fackrell, the CEO of Humaneyezed, a company that provides leads for various industries. “I talked to friends and family to see what options were available, and a friend of mine referred me to a company called Lendio.”

I filled out a few questions and pushed submit and sat back and waited,” Fackrell said. “I thought I’d have to wait a couple days, but within minutes I had offers already coming in to my email box. I was pretty impressed. We had a number of fantastic options and we were able to pick what worked best for our company.”

  3. I dont think Lendio works for every small business. The money market is tight and just a matter of luck if you get any responses even in months. But its good to have somebody out there like Lendio.

    • Prabhakar, I think you’re actually right when it comes to being approved for a business loan. In the end, it all depends on the business owner and his/her particular business, revenue, time in biz, credit, etc. What Lendio can do for every business, however, is help you shop and compare rates, terms, and find what might be the best fit. And you can do it for free, quickly in one spot, and while preserving your credit.
