For small and medium businesses or those which are in their growing stages, to obtain finances is a very tough task. Bank loans are not easily provided to such organizations as they take into consideration factors like number of years in business, assets and other factors. Moreover getting a loan is a time consuming process. In situations, where organizations have customers who pay in a period of 30 to 60 days or more, managing funds becomes difficult. They may miss out on an opportunity to attain new business merely due to lack of funds. This in turn leads to financial losses, as well as further opportunities to grow.
