What our clients say
"We were experiencing rapid growth and we needed to process ahead of time to meet demands over our seasonal shutdown period. This creates huge pressure on cash flow which traditional banks have been unwilling to address. Fifo Capital’s invoice discounting has allowed us to keep a positive cash flow and meet the demands of our customers. All our requests have been met with the minimum of fuss and the process is very simple to use. I would happily recommend Fifo Capital."− Health Foods and Supplements Business, Nelson
