Since then he has authored over 100 articles dealing with everything from the influence of character in the loan process to the politics of SBA funding. He has also worked with local entrepreneur and business developer David Kamatoy to produce several lending- and finance-related interviews. In 2011 Kamatoy and Francis joined to create an information video to help explain the role of SBA funding in financing a restaurant.
