Walnut Ridge Bank Loan Tips
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, walk the banker through the planned use of proceeds, 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 loan 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 guarantee 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.
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.
Many of the banks in our list participate in the financial assistance programs available through the SBA. Before you sit down to talk with a small business 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.
