Before contacting banks to discuss getting a bank loan, you will need to have a specific plan.
You need to be able to clearly explain your business, explain how much you want to borrow, describe what the money will finance, and show how you intend to to pay the loan back to the bank.
Being able to present a well-written business plan is an important prerequisite. If the bank loan is to for a company that is already doing business, you should also have financial statements covering the last three years. You will also need to discuss what collateral you have available to secure the loan. Collateral is relevant because banks always
want to be prepared for a worst-case scenario in which cash flow from the business does not meet your projections.
If the business has few assets, you will likely be asked to to guarantee the loan with your personal assets, such as the equity in your home. The banks will check on your personal credit history in any case, so hopefully you have good credit history
