As expected, the Covid effect hit many companies and while everyone was trying to survive the turbulence and adapt to these new challenges, many companies still managed to get through with great results all around. Until next year, companies can keep moving forward and show how truly resilient the factoring industry is. After all, Factoring has been through many challenges including wars, plagues, geopolitical issues and now this pandemic, but the industry is extremely resilient and we will get through this as well.
