Refugee Hope Partners

Lendio and Ready Capital were great to work with. The process was easy and Lendio reviewed our application and gave us a confirmation number all on the same day! All-in-all, a very simple process. Our wonderful experience has made us a fan and we would highly recommend Lendio to anyone!

Our experience with Lendio and our SBA lender, Customers Bank, was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment we submitted our PPP application, we could tell that representatives from both Lendio and Customers Bank were hard at work. Our PPP loan was funded a couple of weeks later!

Acadiana Cafe

Acadiana Café has been in this community for 34 years. Due to COVID-19, we dropped down to doing about 25% in sales due to the shut down of dining rooms. Our PPP from Lendio is one of the things that saved us. Our experience with Lendio and Ready Capital was exceptional.

Brighter Future Charity

Brighter Future Charity couldn’t be more appreciative of all the support that we have received through Lendio and Ready Capital during these challenging times. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Working with Lendio was simple, seamless, and surprisingly easy… Lendio and Northeast Bank have literally saved our company, we will forever be grateful.

Kristen Hall

Puptown Charlotte

I applied for the PPP loan at 8 different places before finally finding Lendio. The other places ignored and rejected me but Lendio listened and helped me... I’m so glad that Lendio is advocating for small businesses in general, and Puptown Charlotte in particular!

Brayli Dripps

Mabble Media

Working with Lendio was the best thing we could’ve done. Our PPP Loan was being processed with Lendio’s help even before our bank had announced that they could start receiving applications. Our PPP loan saved the jobs of each of our employees...Thank you, Lendio, for helping us to serve our community!

Imagine Possibilities

When the Covid-19 crisis hit it looked as if closing our doors was our only option. Lendio took us seamlessly through the PPP application process. Because of their efforts, we have preserved jobs for 18 dedicated staff who are providing services to some of our society’s most vulnerable individuals at a time of crisis.
