BUSINESS OF THE MONTH
Here at DPA Law we really value our local community.
For the next 12 months we shall be supporting a different local business every month - this will include a Q&A as we get to know these business owners.
Our Local Business of the Month in January is Dragon Business Finance
Dragon Business Finance Ltd (DBF) is a business finance consultancy based in Llanelli.
Formed in 2008 by husband-and-wife team Iain & Debbie Dangerfield, DBF helps businesses to find the finance they need for their business purchases and cashflow requirements.
DBF is totally independent and has a panel of approximately 40 lenders which they use to provide facilities for their clients. Typically, clients require funding for vehicles, machinery, IT Equipment and to ease their cashflow, however DBF prides itself on finding the funding solution which best suits the client’s requirements and saves them time and often money too.
DBF has built a reputation for their professional yet friendly service and has clients from the length and breadth of the UK but with a particular focus on South Wales.
The type of finance facilities which DBF helps clients access include Leasing, Hire Purchase, Business Loans, and Invoice Finance (Factoring).
I formed DBF after a long and successful career in Corporate Banking and Finance, having previously been a Director at Bank Of Scotland. I saw a gap in the local market for my services and more importantly, doing something i enjoy - helping businesses. After a stressful, high profile job which resulted in me spending an increase amount of time away from my (at the time) young family, I wanted a good work life balance.
