Success Stories

Tales from some
of our valued
business clients.

Mitch Steel, Meet Restaurant.

Mitch chose to partner with Funda when he needed access to fast funds without fuss. While moving his successful Brazilian style barbeque restaurant to a new location, he ran into a cash flow shortage and urgently needed funding to finish off the build of the new space. Funda provided an outcome within 24 hours from Mitch’s application and he was able to focus on finishing the build and opening his restaurant back up to the public as soon as possible.

By providing Meet restaurant with a fast & fair business loan, Mitch was able to forge ahead and complete the location transition in a timely manner to minimise the financial impact of the no trade period. Mitch now is up and running with a space double the seating capacity of his old restaurant.
