Once you’ve determined that an SBA or traditional bank loan is the right kind of financing for your business, you’ll need to package your financial information in a way that makes it easy for a banker to make a favorable decision. At the most basic level, you will need to:

  • Determine how much you will need for your loan
  • Be able to describe basic information about your business
  • Provide basic information about the loan you are requesting
  • Share financial information about your business
  • Have a clear understanding of how you will pay back the loan
