Inventory financing(redirected from Inventory Lending)
A loan or line of credit available to a business secured by its own inventory. That is, a business places its inventory as collateral in exchange for an operating loan. Inventory financing is advantageous for businesses with a large amount of physical inventory ready to ship. Inventory financing is used as a stop-gap against temporary cash flow problems resulting from inventory ready to sell but not sold. It is not recommended as a long-term financing tool.
