You have a brilliant idea for a business, you have the manpower to begin but now how do you go about getting the funding to sustain the business till it is bringing in revenue.  That is where unsecured business loans come into play.  An unsecured business loan will be available to you to draw on for the needs of the business as it flourishes like an open loan agreement up to a point.  Often times this type of loan is good for the start up cost involved in opening a new business such as; equipment, expansion or modifications of the existing office and advertising needs.

Going about acquiring an unsecured business loan is much like any other type of loan agreement.  The major difference is that you are now required to put up any collateral to secure the advance.   The great thing about this type of loan is that you are only accessed interest on the amount of the loan that is used.  So even if the loan is for twenty five thousand dollars if you only use five thousand, interest will only occur on five thousand.

In order to receive an unsecured loan many lenders will look into your business plan and the credit history of the business.  Of course, this is an issue if the business is brand new.  Lenders want to ensure that they will be able to recoup the lent funds.  It is imperative that your businesses credit score get established.  In order to do this you will need to make sure the outstanding payments the business does have are paid on time and in full.

Establishing a good business credit score can be done by taking out small loans with multiple lenders that report to the SBFE.  You can also establish a business credit history by using business credit cards and with your vendors and the lines of credit they establish for you.   Just be consistent with your payments and you will find yourself well on your way to establishing a credit history worthy of an unsecured business loan.

It takes time to get a small business, or any business for that matter off the ground.  With some strategic planning and a lot of hard work and a bit of luck you will be well on your way to establishing your dream.  Remember when starting out when you take off don’t let it go to your head.  Getting too big for your britches does not make you successful in business.  Work at a steady consistent pace to receive the rewards which you are working towards.
