Ten Things to Do Before Applying for a Business Loan

Are you planning to apply for a business loan? In this workshop, we will provide you with valuable insights and information on the essential steps you need to take before applying for a business loan.

Here is what you can expect to learn:

  • Bring all documentation of profit and loss statements: We will guide you on how to prepare and organize your financial statements, including profit and loss statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements.
  • Equipment and tax information: If you purchased any equipment or paid any taxes on those or other items, bring information. We will discuss how to present this information to the lender.
  • SBA loan requirements: If you are interested in an SBA loan, we will help you understand the requirements and provide guidance on how to apply. You will also learn how to present your reasons for needing the loan and how you would pay it back.
  • QA session: In addition to the above topics, we will provide ample time for a QA session. You can list all other questions separately for discussion.
