  • Borrow against inventory
  • Add-on to our core product
  • Creates additional cash flow
  • Reduce short-term debt


Inventory Financing can be easily summed up as a short-term loan or line of credit made to a business that allows it to purchase products to sell. The inventory purchased serves as the collateral for the loan if the company cannot sell its products and repay the loan, also known as a loan against inventory. Inventory lending is useful for companies that are affected by the seasonality of cash flow fluctuations. If a company can acquire Inventory Financing, then it can achieve higher sales volume, higher growth, and expand business where it could not have without the Inventory Financing.


Countless companies and businesses can achieve success through Inventory Financing, such as small to medium sized retailers and wholesalers. Larger corporations have large institutional banks from which to borrow, giving them easier access to funding when times are tough. For smaller businesses that require Inventory Financing for manufacturing products, access to these large entities is not as easy, nor is ensuring that your accounts receivable and balance sheets are in good order. Qualifying is made easy for small and medium-sized business owners with SummitFR, and our Inventory Financing rates are the best in the lender business!

Our team of expert Inventory Financing lenders can help make the process, so your business can get the funding it needs to help grow your revenue and customer base. We are a secured party that makes sure that your inventory loan is guaranteed, making your business owners’ worries about creating additional cash flow a thing of the past! Apply online today >
