The Financing Challenge

A husband and wife came to Ready Capital with the goal of becoming first-time business owners. They had their eyes on a florist studio that had served the Sunny Isles Beach, and several nearby communities, for over two decades.

It was clear that the couple had great ownership potential, but they had some on-paper challenges that blocked the path to traditional small business financing.

Loan Scenario

Here's what our borrowers brought to Ready Capital

New to ownership

No prior business ownership or industry experience, and short tenure for current owner.

Unsecured deal

An unsecured deal with much of the loan proceeds going toward goodwill.

Staff dependencies

A team of 4 studio employees and 6 delivery personnel whose livelihoods depended on a smooth transition.


Ready Capital was able to review the borrowers' backgrounds and business plans with an eye on their potential. The numbers worked, and the couple's plans to grow the business were rooted in both established successes and modern model upgrades that made sense.

The Non-Bank SBA Preferred Lender Difference

A small business loan is not an empty box like a checking or savings account. No two small businesses are alike when it comes to their financing needs. This means that small business financing requires out-of-the-box thinking and capabilities many banks simply can’t offer.

Ready Capital is a non-bank, SBA preferred lending partner (PLP). We speak fluent small business and have the process in place to help them reach their goals the first time.
