Hurricane Sandy put my business in a bind. Luckily, the folks at MCC were there for me and able to get me funding within 24 hours.

Merchant Cash and Capital, LLC announced today that it has instituted special Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief for merchants/businesses impacted by the recent “superstorm.” MCC, who itself understands how the aftermath of this storm has affected businesses on the eastern seaboard, is stepping in to provide special programs and funding options for Sandy victims as it had done in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irene and Katrina and the BP Oil spill.

Specifically, MCC has immediately instituted a disaster relief program that:

*Provides up to $250k in just 72 hours for qualifying businesses
*Streamlines and expedites the underwriting process
*Reduces documentation requirements
*MCC will donate 1 % of each cash advance funded to Hurricane Sandy affected merchants to a charity of the merchant’s choice
*Offers Hurricane Sandy affected merchants discounted rates for early payoff and pre-payments

“The aftermath of Hurricane Irene was a devastating time for businesses in my area. MCC (Merchant Cash and Capital) was there in my greatest time of need with quick financing to help my business get back on its feet. Thank you!” said Mark V., Owner of Killarney Restaurant in Vermont. “I hope you can help people in your area as much as you helped my business.”

“Hurricane Sandy put my business in a bind. Luckily, the folks at MCC were there for me and able to get me funding within 24 hours,” said Dominick, Owner of Dominick’s Bakery Café, Staten Island, NY.

“We are in the business of helping merchants, especially in times of urgent need. Hurricane Sandy has created that urgency and Merchant Cash and Capital is creating special opportunities for businesses that need help right now,” said MCC CEO Stephen Sheinbaum. “When you qualify for a merchant cash advance, you can use it as you see fit. With the devastation created by Sandy, we expect merchants to use the financing for new equipment, new inventory, to rebuild and for any reason they must to keep their business going or to get it up and running again. We are anxious to help.”

There are other options for small business disaster financing but none are as quick and easy to obtain as a merchant cash advance from MCC. The Small Business Administration (SBA) offers loans of up to $2 million to businesses located in disaster stricken areas but the application process and time to funding can be lengthy. Traditional lenders may have funds available too but their requirements are often more stringent and funding normally takes even longer. Experts agree that under such severe circumstances, a merchant cash advance may be the best solution even as a bridge or “stop gap” until other funding, if necessary, can be secured.

“We know what it takes to rebuild and have helped businesses in many parts of the country come back from disasters, natural and man-made. We are ready to help again and with that help we are ready to give back to the Red Cross to bring even more assistance to those in need,” said MCC’s Sheinbaum.
