Twelve Members of the Alternative Small Business Lending Community Join Forces for Charity

Twelve prominent merchant cash advance related companies compete for charity

Online PR News – 26-September-2012 – New York, NY – Twelve major players that operate within the merchant cash advance and microloan space are giving back while having fun. The merchant cash advance industry fantasy football league made its first debut this year and the prize is a charitable donation. Though many of the participants are competitors, they reached a quick consensus to do together what each company does best individually and that’s to help strengthen communities.

Sean Murray, CEO of Raharney Capital, LLC and operator of Merchant Processing Resource is a league co-founder. According to Murray, “Each participant has chosen a registered 501(c) charity to represent. At the end of the season, the league will make a large cash donation to the winning team’s selected charity. The initial prize was $500 courtesy of Raharney Capital but the league participants were quick to offer a massive amount of additional support. At last count, $5,850 had been pledged to the prize altogether.” Murray continued, “The participants in this league already help provide much needed capital to small businesses in a time when bank lending is scarce. We all want to continue reaching out to communities in as many ways as we can. This charitable fantasy football competition is just the beginning of a much more comprehensive cooperative movement down the road.”
