At Direct Capital, we spend a lot of time working with our customers to find financing solutions. We like to think we make the vast majority of those customers quite happy, but it’s especially nice to hear that from them.

I received the following e-mail from customer Arnold Lee of Lee’s and Little Lee’s, whose business focuses on FedEx deliveries. Lee’s is a story of being a startup looking for the money needed to get ahead and struggling, and then finding a finance partner who could get it done in Direct Capital. His lease allowed him to get needed equipment and navigate the choppy waters of the 2009 recession.

Think of this as sort of a mini-highlight from a customer who is seeing brighter days in a recovering economy. We’re happy to share his e-mail.

All the best to you for the New Year.

I started banking with a well-known bank from June 1999 on. They had my savings as well as my IRA. I wanted to purchase a truck to start my trucking business. I asked them for a loan.

They told me I would have to be in business for two years or more before they could assist me.

I walked out of the bank feeling let down. I felt like closing my account; however, I did not. I said to myself, I will not give up, I will let my account stay and let them see that another door will open.

A friend, Richard, told me about Direct Capital shortly after, and the rest is history.

The last two years were still not a walk in the park. It was an uphill task, but I am hoping that things will turn around this year so that things will be better.

Has Direct Capital financing helped you get through the recession, or helped your business to grow? We’d love to hear your story.
