With the added pressures put on retailers in Australia due to COVID-19 restrictions, we at Sana understand the need to assist the industry to stay afloat and to prosper in these difficult times.
“We have seen many gyms, beauty services, restauranteurs and retailers, pivoting to adjust their business model to operate during lockdown. For a lot of these businesses this is like starting up a new venture from the ground up. This means reinvesting capital into areas of the business that were not originally required,” stated Troy Falloon from Sana Finance. “Businesses need to remain front of mind and continue to find a way to deal with these restrictions.”
Sana Finance has therefore been working closely with a number of retail businesses to bridge the ‘finance’ gap between physical and digital sales. While there are a lot of incentives from the Government for these types of businesses, there are some that are unable to meet the criteria.
“We understand the community is hurting, particularly the shops that have remain closed for nearly two months now, with no official end date in sight.”
Sana Finance has expanded their ecosystem to work closely with Verimark’s Michael Amler, a highly sort after expert in the space.
