Why work for money when money can work for you?
- IFG provides short-term working capital to small businesses by purchasing selected invoices at a discount
- IFG Franchisees work primarily with small expanding companies that find it difficult to attract conventional funding
- IFG Clients can convert an invoice, due in 30 - 45 days, into a "cash-on-delivery" sale and that means immediate cash for them!
IFG franchisees buy assets — they do not lend money! The asset they buy is an account receivable (invoice). The franchisee buys an invoice at a discount of its face value and holds it until payment, usually 40 days. At the end of the credit period the IFG franchisee receives payment of 100% of the face value of the invoice. The discount is the franchisee's income.
