Launch Credit Union and Nu Direction Lending Partner To Offer SBA Loans

Merritt Island, Florida (May, 2021)

Launch Credit Union is here to support our business members with funding and financing options to help you lower monthly payments, consolidate debt, or grow working capital.  We are pleased to partner with Nu Direction Lending, a specialty small business lender owned and funded by credit unions and tailored to serve the needs of their business members.  If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, Nu Direction Lending may be right for your business:

  • Do large business debt monthly payments prevent you from reinvesting in your business?
  • Do variable rates on your existing business debt lead you to unpredictability in your monthly expenses?
  • Do you have a high interest rate business debt you received through an online lender or a merchant cash advance?
  • Do you have an expansion projection coming up or need an injection of working capital?

With Nu Direction’s easy-to-use online application and quick decisions, now is a great time to consider refinancing your business debt into one, fixed-rate loan with a steady monthly payment that helps you pay down your principal and lower your monthly payments. Here are just a few of the benefits of a business refinance loan with Nu Direction Lending:

  • Loan amounts ranging from as small as $25,000 up to $350,000.
  • Loan terms up to 48 months.
  • Fully-amortized fixed payments, allowing you to pay off your debts quicker.
  • Fixed rates as low as 6.99% APR
  • No prepayment penalty fees!
  • No application fee!

How can I use the proceeds?
You can use your loan proceeds to refinance an existing loan or business credit card debt.  Or, you can use your funds to expand, purchase new equipment, or even acquire a new business!

What are the qualifications?
Your business needs to be operating for at least 24 months and currently generating revenue, and located anywhere in the US except Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota and Vermont. Business owners should be United States Citizens, have good personal credit, and neither the business nor owners should have a bankruptcy filing within the past five years.

How can I get started?
You can apply today through our preferred small business lending partner, Nu Direction Lending. Loan decisions can be rendered in as little as ten minutes and funding can be available in as little as a week.

Is there any up-front commitment?
