Arley Bank Loan Tips
Prior to meeting with banks to discuss getting a bank loan, you will need to determine exactly what size loan you will be asking for.
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 your ability to pay the money back to the bank.
A well-defined business plan is essential. If the bank loan is to for a going concern, 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 pledge your personal assets, such as stocks and bonds that you might own or life insurance policies. 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 meeting with the banker, you may want to get up to speed 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.
