Working with General Merchant Funding and their executive Yannick Edwards was an A plus experience.

When the pandemic hit in March of 2020 my company was doing almost $1.2 million in revenue a year and we were expecting our best year yet. Not realizing the severity of the situation we expected the schools to reopen with-in a month and were reluctant to cut personell costs as our team needed their jobs and were good at them as well. After five months our revenue was down by 60% and we were worried about being able to stay in business. By happenstance we learned of the SBA programs providing for emergency loans as assistance for disastors like the one caused by COVID. Unexperienced we realized the process was not our expertise and looking for help intellectually, we soon were introduced to General Merchant Funding and met their executive Yannick Edwards who guided us through the proces. At times the situation began to be stressful and Yannick's poise maturity and judgement kept us going forward. Following his capable guidance we were able to meet the requirments of the loan and and several weeks ago achieve success securing a 30 year loan that enabled us to start rebuilding our team and our educational product line. We are expecting a strong up turn in orders soon and are excited about executing our five year business plan. I wanted to thank the team at General Merchant Funding especially Yannick Edwards for helping us achieve our goal of long-term financing so we could begin to plan for the long-term. they are a fine company and we recommend them without hesitation.

Excellent help

To whom it may concern. When I first spoke to Taylor Tobias with (GMF) General Merchant Funding he was very very helpful. He started out by introducing his self, and proceeded to telling me how the process worked and lead me through every step of the process as if he was setting by my side. I know that I was a thorn in his side by worrying him with a thousand questions and many phone calls. He never once lead me to believe that I was getting on his nerves šŸ˜†.
If anyone that I come in contact with that needs any kinda of help with funding I will highly recommend them to him. It is hard to find people like Taylor who goes above and beyond to help people. Thanks for your help Taylor and GMF.
