Basic business loan requirements criteria

  • Business Plan: your plan should include a business overview, operations plan, sales and marketing plan, competitive market analysis, product/service overview, financial plan, projections, and management team summary.
  • Personal History: lenders will need to ask for some information about your personal history, including your credit profile, experience, and financial position.
  • Business History: at what stage is your business? We'll want to understand whether you're a startup or established business in order to match you to an appropriate lender.
  • Revenue Projections: most lenders will want to understand your cash flow in order to size a loan that makes sense for you. Startup or pre-revenue? That's okay, we have many lenders that provide microloans for businesses to get off the ground.

If you meet the requirements, you’ll find our process quick, easy, and most importantly—small business friendly. We’ll be with you every step of the way, helping you with everything from preparing your application to closing the loan.
