To ensure a seamless and secure loan application process, we have partnered with Plaid, a trusted financial services company. In this article, we will explore why Camino Financial utilizes Plaid to analyze the bank transaction data of business owners applying for business loans.

What Is Plaid?

Plaid is a reliable financial services company that assists us in streamlining the loan application process. By securely connecting with your bank account, Plaid allows us to verify your identity, review the last 12 months of your bank transactions, and make swift and accurate decisions regarding your loan application. With over 10,000 banks and lenders utilizing this tool, Plaid has become an industry standard, providing a private, secure, and convenient alternative to outdated methods such as manually uploading and analyzing bank statements.
#DidYouKnow Plaid has been adopted by prominent financial institutions like American Express and Citibank, demonstrating its trustworthiness and wide-ranging usage.

4 Reasons Why Camino Financial Uses Plaid

At Camino Financial, we strive to offer you the best and most secure user experience when applying for a business loan. Plaid plays a vital role in our loan application process for the following reasons:
  1. Identity Verification. It helps us validate your identity by cross-checking what we have with the bank's data, significantly reducing the risk of fraud.
  2. Business Cash Flow Confirmation. It allows us to electronically review the last months of your bank transactions. We use this information to analyze your cash flows and income. In other words, a Plaid loan approval is more efficient.
  3. Security Assurance. To offer you collateral-free loans, we need a comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date review of your banking transactions. It helps us determine a term loan amount with favorable rates you can comfortably repay without straining your cash flows.
  4. Efficient Application Review. With it, we can review your loan application swiftly and securely. This allows us to offer a great alternative to expensive financing alternatives, like Merchant Cash Advances or Payday Loans.
