Camino Financial offers Services to Customers, who include small business owners and individuals.
Camino Financial’s primary Service is to offer loans to our small business owner Customers through Camino’s own sources of capital, or serves as a marketplace on behalf of banks, non-depository lenders, and other lending sources. For these credit services and products Camino originates, Camino aids small business owners in preparing required documents, processing the loan, and funding the loan.
In addition, Camino Financial provides Services through relationships with its third-party partners (“Affiliate Partners) who may connect Customers with offers for products and services relevant to Customers’ personal and/or business needs. For example, Camino Financial operates as a referral partner, on behalf of Affiliate Partners, to connect Customers with opt-in offers for Affiliate Partner products and services, including but not limited to personal loans, credit cards and insurance.
