Business Loan Advice for Joshua Tree Businesses
Before reaching out to banks for a loan, you will need to determine exactly what size loan you will be asking for.
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 how you plan to pay the loan back to the bank.
Being able to present a well-written business plan is essential. If the financing 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 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 stocks and bonds that you might own or life insurance policies. The banks will look at your personal credit report 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 these banks participate in the financial assistance programs available through the SBA. Before meeting with the banker, you may want to do your homework 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.
