South Russell Business Loan Advice
As a prerequisite to contacting banks to discuss getting a bank loan, you will need to have a specific plan.
You need to be able to clearly introduce your business to the banker, explain how much you want to borrow, define how the money will be used, and show how you intend to to pay the money 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 guarantee 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 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
-- 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. Before you sit down to talk with a small business banker, you may want to read up on on SBA loans programs to see if you qualify.
