With credit tightening, Bizfi doubles down on platform

2016 has been a tough year for many online lenders. Bizfi seems to be rocking and rolling, though. The online lending platform originally started as a balance sheet lender. But a few years in, Bizfi is finding success with its lending partners and a smart distribution and partnership strategy.
