Jan 30, 2008
Knowing the correct type of loan to ask for is essential in getting the bank to approve your desired loan. Banks have many different loans available and it is necessary for you to have a written business plan in place before approaching the bank of your choice.

Also, business owners have several types of funding choices, based on various factors about your business. Some of the programs available through the Business Credit Services are below.

Types Of Business Loans (Explained Basically)

Secured Working Capital Loans

These loans are secured by collateral. The lender will take a security interest in your property. If you do not pay the loan back the lender has the right to seize your collateral. Most lenders will require collateral to secure a small business loan. Lenders will not lend you more than 100 percent of the value of your collateral and will usually only lend you 60 to 80 percent of its value.

Unsecured Working Capital Loans

As the name implies, these are loans that are not secured by any collateral. Credit cards, while not technically loans, are the most common example of unsecured debt. The lender is loaning you money based on your reputation and credit worthiness. It is very. very rare to find a lender willing to give you an unsecured loan for a new business. Because you have no track record for them to work from.
