Building Business Credit

Business credit allows a company to borrow money that can be used to purchase products or services. It is based on the trust that payment will be made in the future. Business credit gives you access to cash and credit lifeline for your business.


Branded by Glam has specialized in building business credit for entrepreneurs. Building business credit is tricky but it is well worth it and every business should be able to have access to lines of credit and NET vendor accounts.
