Prior to meeting with lenders to discuss getting a bank loan, you will need to develop the specifics of your loan request.

A well-defined business plan is an important prerequisite. If the capital is to for an existing business, you should also have financial statements covering the last three years. Bankers will also want to know 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.
