National Funding tailors its product offerings to specific industries, specializing in the following areas:
National Funding also customizes its offerings for women-owned, minority-owned and veteran-owned businesses.
Rates and fees are not readily available online and are likely not disclosed until you go through the application process.

National Funding offers several business financing options without strict credit requirements or industry limitations. National Funding’s simple application and short time to funding is similar to other online lenders. However, National Funding’s website is a bit more difficult to navigate compared to similar lenders, and loan details are not accessible. National Funding also does not list executives or founding members on its site, as many other lenders do. Although the lender does not share many details online, National Funding’s nearly 20 years in operation indicates effective business practices.
