Morganton Business Loan Advice
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, define how the money will be used, and show your ability to pay the loan back to the lender.
Having a business plan is an important prerequisite. 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 you cannot repay the loan.
If the business has few assets, you will likely be asked to secure the business 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
-- you may want to get a copy of your credit history prior to meeting with the banker.

Before you sit down to talk with a small business banker, you may want to get up to speed on SBA loans programs to see if you qualify.
