In 2015, Fuelstream obtained a $2M revolving line of credit from NuVenture Group, LLC for fuel purchases, and has the ability to expand the line of credit. Access to credit has and will result in more favorable pricing and, consequently, improved margins. Additional credit lines in excess of $10M are also being developed as the Company's sales increase. Access to a stable credit provider will enable Fuelstream to service progressively larger accounts and obtain larger discounts from fuel producers.
