Banjo Loans are simply a funder who is great to have in the lending market. They see the people and stories behind our Australian SMEs and work with them wherever possible, rather than seeing them as a simple ‘algorithm’.”Luke Matias – Matias Group

Our experience with Banjo Loans has been first class – they are very accommodating and flexible depending on the circumstances of our clients. Response rate is very, very quick, which is what SME businesses want and need. We are different to other accounting firms in terms of our structure and “divisions” so it is important that we retain the relationship with our client – Banjo “get this” which makes the relationship between us very effective. Keep up the great work!”Bruce Debenham – Perks Finance
