TROY, Mich., Aug. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Credibly, a leading findata small and medium-sized business (SMB) lending platform, announced today that the company is now servicing BizFi's $250 million portfolio and 5,200 merchants. Since 2005, BizFi had been a leading capital provider to SMBs and in 2016 was one of nation's top three largest originators of merchant cash advances. Numerous SMB direct lenders vied for the BizFi portfolio. Credibly was chosen due to their proprietary data science driven portfolio management strategy.
Credibly also announced that it has crossed the $500 million milestone in capital deployed to tens of thousands of SMBs across the U.S. This is separate from the $250M portfolio the company is now servicing from BizFi.
