Applying For A Loan or Line Of Credit
Happy Sunday! Welcome back to SUNDAYS & BUSINESS. This week features Abe Barzeski Business Funding Specialist and Credit Booster at Fundi, with three easy-to-implement tips on Applying For A Loan or Line Of Credit!
Increase Your Credit Score
Lenders use your credit score to assess potential risks associated with lending to your business. A higher credit score indicates a lower risk level, making you more attractive as a borrower. Your credit score is the key factor in determining approval and the interest rate you’ll be offered.
Understand the Different Loan Types
Understand the different types of business loans available, such as term loans, lines of credit, and SBA loans. Each loan type has its own pros and cons. You should determine the appropriate type of loan/line of credit based on your business’s needs (it’s important, to be honest about the use of funds to avoid overpaying or having your line closed down)
Research the Application Process
Depending on the bank, you may need to meet certain credit qualifications and/or additional documentation. Some banks may also require you to change your existing banking relationship with them, do your research in advance, and apply to what suits the most for your business needs.
We hope you found this week’s episode insightful and helpful.
