A culture-forward brand gets the traction they need to expand

The Challenge

To grow a produce business the right way, you need hard work and access to a steady flow of working capital. Hector Jimenez, founder and CEO of IMOK Global, knew this. Like many other wholesale distributors that work diligently to grow their business, Hector had grown tired of the cash flow fluctuations that were brought on by disjointed customer payments and shifts in market demands. In search of stability, Hector sought out financing patterns. Banks were too slow and rigid to meet IMOK Global’s unique needs, and the expensive and harsh practices of traditional factoring companies were at odds with IMOK Global’s values. Still in need of financing, Hector searched for an alternative capital partner that would support his company’s goals rather than undermine them.

The Solution

Silo’s Instant Pay solution unlocked a steady flow of funds for IMOK Global, ensuring cash flow predictability. Unlike traditional factoring and other financial solutions that didn’t quite fit the unique needs of the produce industry, Silo’s human-focused approach to financial partnership gave IMOK Global the tools, confidence, and security they needed to succeed. As Hector grows IMOK Global to meet its fullest potential, he leverages Silo to invest more into his valued teams and execute on the strategic growth opportunities that level up his vision for a business built on integrity.

Applying Instant Pay to my business gave me incredible traction with my suppliers and customers. When you have financial security, you operate differently–more confidently. The difference is tangible.
