Prospa doesn’t charge interest because terms are usually less than 12 months. Instead we offer a factor rate. A factor rate is expressed as a decimal figure not a percent. It varies based on your industry, how long you have been in business, the health of your cash flow and other factors. When a factor rate is used, interest is charged to the principal when the loan is originated, it doesn’t compound.
We know fees can be confusing so we made it simple and transparent – there are no hidden fees and the amount due from day one includes the establishment fee. There are no additional fees (excluding any late payment or default fees) and no penalties for early repayment.
We’re totally committed to helping small businesses access the funds they need to grow. Our fast flexible funding can be used for business renovations, marketing, to purchase inventory, new equipment, general working capital and much more.

Asset-based borrowing is when a business owner uses an asset they own to secure a loan. The asset can be either a personal asset like the family home, or a business asset like a truck or piece of equipment. The vast majority of lenders, including the big banks, tend to secure loans against an asset. If you have trouble paying back the loan then your asset may be sold by the lender. In essence it’s a way of securing new financing by using the value of what you already have.
An unsecured loan is when the health of a business is used to determine creditworthiness, without the business owner needing to secure the loan by putting up an asset as security. Larger banks tend not to offer these as the arduous paperwork, low returns and higher risks involved don’t make it worthwhile. Many small business owners find themselves having to use an asset to secure a loan, or being declined.
