The financing offers short term loans secured by real estate for many purposes, including bridging loans, business and personal loans, development and construction loans and many other purposes with loan terms of three months. at three years.

National Partnership Fundraiser Michelle Southern said, “We are delighted to partner with AFG and deliver our product to their professional network of brokers.
