About this book
Getting a Business Loan: Financing Your Main Street Business shares something your local banker might not want you to know—small business owners have options. And this book describes those alternative lending sources in detail, as well as traditional sources of funding like banks and credit unions.
Half of all business startups don’t make past their fifth birthday—and often because they can’t find the financing required to sustain their operations. Whether you own a small restaurant, a bicycle shop, a hardware store, a small manufacturing company, or a service business, Getting a Business Loan offers easy-to-understand descriptions of loan options that can keep you going, as well as practical advice on where to look for money and how to apply.
What would you do with an extra $40,000? Expand your restaurant? Hire a new employee to fulfill a new contract? Buy a needed piece of equipment? Getting a Business Loan will:
- Detail how bankers look at you and your loan application
- Explain the menu of non-bank financing options available to business owners, like asset-based lending, factoring, merchant cash advance, local “hard money,” and more
- Show how to locate potential lenders via the Internet and other means
- Show how to prepare before you visit the lender or fill out an application
