Fulton Bank Loan Tips
Prior to meeting with lenders to get 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 lender.
A well-defined business plan is essential. If the bank loan is to for an existing business, you should also have financial statements covering the last three years. In addition, you should itemize 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, the bank may ask you to to pledge 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
-- you may want to get a copy of your credit history prior to meeting with the banker.
Many of the banks in our list participate in the financial assistance programs available through the SBA. Prior to visiting local banks, you may want to read up on on SBA loans programs to see if you qualify. SBA 7(a) loans, SBA 504 loans and SBA disaster assistance loans may be available to you.
