Max Herman, lending manager at Lendhub, said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for the borrower, however, it was important for them to release the maximum amount of capital at the outset.
“There were setbacks, including a lower-than-expected residual valuation among other matters, which we were able to overcome.
“At Lendhub, we take pride in crafting products to suit our borrowers’ needs and give their project what it needs to succeed.”
