Harsh Chawla opened Pukka in late 2013 to stellar reviews, and it remains one of the highest-rated Indian restaurants in Toronto.

When some unforeseen expenses arose, Harsh obtained a merchant advance to cover the costs. While Pukka continued to operate very successfully, repayments on its merchant advance caused undue strain on its cash flow. Pukka’s merchant advance carried a far higher interest rate than the popular restaurant deserved.

Assembling the right ingredients.

We were able to refinance Pukka’s merchant advance at a significantly lower rate with a Lending Loop loan requiring manageable monthly payments. Lending Loop loans are completely open and can be paid off in full at any time with no fees or penalties.
