Letter from the President

Founded in late 2003, Cash Flow Resources, CFR, is a private commercial factoring company serving local and regional businesses, primarily in the Gulf South. For more than 20 years, CFR has supported businesses in need of working capital and guidance, including existing, start-up, early stage and high growth businesses. In addition to factoring, CFR provides consulting and accounting services to ensure clients make the best of their relationship with CFR.

We have years of banking and finance experience on staff at CFR. With well over a decade of experience in factoring, we’re fully invested in our community. Large financial institutions aren’t always the best resource for small businesses. CFR, on the other hand, takes the time and effort to assist clients with challenges that arise every day. We aim to use our expertise to guide entrepreneurs so they can thrive in their communities. Through a combination of funding, consulting, and accounting, CFR becomes a financial partner, a true trusted advisor, so our clients can do what they do best – run their business!

CFR truly understands the struggles that entrepreneurs and start-ups face. Our approach isn’t the same for all clients. We build relationships and customize a plan that fits our clients’ needs and preferences. That even includes reviewing contracts and whether or not it makes sense to extend credit terms to prospective customers. Let us know about your business and your goals and we will work with you to develop a financial strategy to get accomplish them.
