I would definitely recommend M.I.S.S for others starting a public transport or cab-hailing business. With us being a startup company they were able to help us with financing. The process with them was flawless.
When i needed startup capital for my business I could not get funding from banks for months. M.I.S.S didn’t have those issues. They were much easier to deal with, more personable. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking at other financing options. ”
Financing the equipment with M.I.S.S has allowed me to think about other ways to create new products. It allows me to free up capital that I could invest in other areas, which has been a really great blessing.
