Oceano Bank Loan Tips
Prior to contacting banks for a 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, describe what the money will finance, and show how you intend to to pay the money back to the bank.
Having a business plan is is critically important. If the financing 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 you cannot repay the loan.
If the business has few assets, you will likely be asked to pledge your personal assets, such as the equity in your home. 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.
