Get Started

Once upon a time, the best option for someone looking for the best business loans for small and medium sized businesses was to walk into your friendly neighborhood bank and walk out with a loan approval, and a handy bank calendar.

Unfortunately, much of that changed as a result of the Great Recession, which created significant challenges for small and medium sized businesses looking to get funding for their business. The good news is that those challenges don’t mean that you can’t live your dream of starting or growing your business. You just need to understand what your options are.

History of small business lending

Back around 2008 when the Great Recession erupted, the small business lending industry changed drastically. The risk that was recognized in the mortgage industry meant that banks were now more stringent with their small business lending requirements. This made it virtually impossible for applicants with flawed credit and/or less than two years of credit history to apply. Banks are in a position where they can – and likely should – be more picky with their terms, and big businesses still benefit with low-cost loans. But, if your business is still new, how do you grow to that big business that can benefit from those same low-cost loans?

Alternative lending options to help you find the best small business loans for your company

If you’re looking for the best small business loan for your company, here are some of the options available to you:

Working capital loans 

Small business term loans

SBA loans

Business line of credit 

Merchant cash advance
