Account Manager
(760) 877-1459
My name is Julianna Brazil, your ARF Financial Loan Consultant serving San Diego County. I have over 12+ years experience working with local business owners. As a former small business owner I know that cash flow is key to a successful business. ARF Financial provides short-term working capital business loans and lines of credit for hospitality business owners. Most merchants that I work with are in their growth/expansion phase. Whether it’s funding for quick build-out projects for new locations, bridge financing while waiting on conventional funding or lines of credit for working capital needed for inventory/equipment or simply just to have available in case of the unexpected, I can help. ARF Financial fills the void between traditional bank financing and less attractive avenues of financing, such as taking on partners or getting financing from a cash advance or factoring company.
