You need to be able to clearly explain your business, explain how much you want to borrow, walk the banker through the planned use of proceeds, and show how you intend to to pay the loan back to the bank.
Having a business plan is is critically important. If the capital 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.
