What is Predatory Lending?

Unfortunately there are online lenders who charge exorbitant rates and fees, which is considered predatory. This can make their loans so expensive that a business can't keep up with the payments. As a group of non-profit lenders, our goal through Connect2Capital is to ethically and responsibly connect you to the loan that is right for your business.

What can I use my loan for?

Our small business loans can be used for purposes such as:

  • owner occupied commercial real estate and leasehold improvements,
  • business equipment,
  • refinancing existing debt,
  • buying a business,
  • starting a business,
  • and permanent working capital.

Is my information safe when applying online?

Our online loan application is highly secure. We do not sell any of your information and we take great care in protecting our customers' information.

What if I don’t qualify?

You may still have options through Connect2Capital.  We partner with a network of non-profit organizations who provide both financing and business advisory services.

What is the length of your loans?

Depending on what is being financed, the loan terms offered can be as long as 25 years, keeping your monthly payment low.

What interest rates do you charge?

The interest rates vary depending on the loan product and the lender. Each lending partner on Connect2Capital has signed the Small Business Borrower Bill of Rights and is committed to providing responsible financing at fair rates.
