A Business for All Seasons

San Jose, California, mecca for the entrepreneur, has spawned many successful ventures. However, few have come as close to defining the word “success” as AeroFund Financial, Inc. (AFI), the little factoring company that has consistently grown in stature and prominence since its inception in 1987.

AeroFund Financial’s humble beginnings in a makeshift garage office mirrors those of several mammoth companies today. AFI traces its roots back to a one-car garage in Los Gatos, affectionately referred to by its founders, Stephen and Leanne Troy, as ‘the submarine’.

If you were a small business in the San Francisco Bay Area and were stuck waiting for invoice payments from your customers, AFI was there for you with cash in hand.

The journey was not an easy one, but intuition, a brave heart, and an astute business sense made it work. Businesses which might have faltered due to a lack of funds to meet payroll, purchase materials, pay utilities, or advertise could continue operations thanks to AFI’s services.

From Home to Real Office

Subsequently, AeroFund Financial purchased, and is now headquartered in its, 13,000 square-foot building in San Jose, California. Rare documents and manuscripts, collected by president Steve Troy, line the halls and conference rooms of the freshly decorated facility, providing employees with a pleasant working environment.

Financial Solutions

AFI has recently expanded its nationwide operations to include the following services: accounts receivable lines of credit, “prime plus” programs patterned after bank lending, lower interest rates with our A/R management services, and 24/7 online reporting. When companies require help in managing their accounts, AFI offers its extensive technology and expertise, thus freeing company staff for other important duties. We provide credit analysis, credit limits monitoring, payment reconciliation, and immediate online reporting and collection services. AeroFund Financial also works in alliance with several purchase order financing institutions.

The AeroFund Financial Team

The environment at AeroFund Financial is one of professionalism and camaraderie. Employees are highly motivated, efficient, and united in their efforts to make AFI the most distinguished company in its field. Founders Steve and Leanne Troy have created a workplace where management and staff work side-by-side to attain a common goal.


Giving Back

AeroFund Financial employees have enjoyed Christmas traditions such as shopping sprees at Toys ‘R’ Us to buy gifts for underprivileged children. AFI has donated thousands of dollars in toys to local children’s charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hope Rehabilitation, InnVision the Way Home, Eastfield Ming Quong, and the San José Children’s Shelter.
