These two options help propel businesses forward without affecting the cash flow.​  Equipment financing works by providing businesses with financing for up to 100% of the equipment's value  with term lengths dependent on the expected life of the equipment.  Fixed payments are broken down on a weekly or monthly basis. Payments include a pre-determined principal and interest over the lapse of the loan or lease term.
