Loan: A Considerable Choice

With the current situation of the world’s economy, most businessmen who cannot afford an expansion with their current financial standing thought that there is no other way to realize their plans. This thinking was even more intensified when many banking institutions denied the loan applications of most start-up business owners. Additionally, government agencies that provide loans to small and medium enterprises have become limited and those that currently operate have restricted the number of loans they provide. As a result, private lending companies earned more popularity.

A lender, as defined by Investopedia, is someone who “provides cash or credit to a borrower that needs to be repaid either in increments (as in a monthly mortgage payment) or as a lump sum (as in a promotional “buy now pay later” arrangement). A lender can be an individual or a public or private group. Lenders may provide funds for a variety of reasons, such as a mortgage, automobile loan, or small business loan.”

Lenders do not easily provide loans to anyone. There are certain requirements or qualifications they must consider before they give out funds. These include the amount of money being requested by the borrower, the capacity of the borrower to pay the loan, and the possible risks if the borrower does not pay the loan back. If a borrower is able to prove himself, has a good reputation, has the collateral, and owns business assets, his need for financial assistance will surely be heeded by the lender.

Primarily, a borrower must exemplify his ability to achieve business success. To do this, he must present a business plan to give the lender an idea on how he will go about the business expansion and, when it has been attained, how much profit will he gain from it. He must also present other financial documents. Secondly, the borrower must prove his ability or capacity to pay or that he has resources, other than monetary, which are highly valuable. Such may serve as down payment to obtain the requested loan. Lastly, the borrower must also present a list of assets owned by the business that may be utilized as an additional security or collateral. Having these qualifications can easily and conveniently help a borrower obtain the loan.

Applying for financing is a very good option provided that the borrower can demonstrate the ability to pay and justify his need for funding. SMEs can be expanded through obtaining loans from trusted lending companies.
