“CBC offered us a flexible cash-management and asset based solution that we were unable to find from other lenders” said Norman Abramson, Chief Operating Officer of Worldwide Dreams. “The CBC team is not only providing Worldwide Dreams with access to more capital, they devoted time and resources in New York and Hong Kong to understand our business, and developed a program with the flexibility that will allow us to explore opportunities to grow.”

“At CBC we have a deep understanding of the apparel industry and where Worldwide Dreams fits in,” said Andrew Tananbaum, president and CEO of Capital Business Credit. “We have a long history of working with fashion and apparel manufacturers and importers. This allows us to understand the credit requirements of market participants and ultimately design the appropriate financing facility for companies like Worldwide Dreams.”
