9. What upcoming trends/news/updates in your industry do you think will likely impact the industry in the next five years?

The lingering effects of COVID-19 will continue to shape the industry, along with geopolitical events such as conflicts and trade disruptions. Additionally, as small and medium-sized enterprises face economic challenges, there will be an increased demand for funding solutions to navigate uncertain times.


10. In the current climate, what advice can you give to business owners with regards to their funding challenges?

It's essential for business owners to maintain meticulous financial records and stay on top of regulatory requirements such as taxes. Don't hesitate to consider business loans as a tool for growth, even during stable periods. Interest rates can be daunting, but leveraging financing options strategically can propel your business forward.
