Branded Finance Programs

ProPartners Financial can help you create a program that carries your own private brand. The branded finance program is created by entering into a Master Participation Agreement with PPF funding and administering the loan program behind the scenes. In most cases, the agribusiness pre-screens the application and then submits to PPF for review. Our in-house documents team files all liens and generates all loan documentation on your behalf. You may elect to perform certain underwriting and documentation tasks if so desired. You and your company maintain control of the customer relationship throughout the loan cycle. All documentation, correspondence and marketing is handled on a private label basis utilizing the branded finance program name, including loan applications and documents, brochures, and Internet sites.
