How to prepare a loan request
As a small business owner, you know everything there is about running your business, but you may feel a bit confused or intimidated by approaching your banker about borrowing money. At TDECU we want to put you at ease, prepare you for this conversation and give you some idea of how bankers make credit decisions. Before approaching any lender, you should carefully evaluate your financing needs. While the lender will make an assessment of their own in analyzing your loan request, you are responsible for identifying the amount of money needed for specific purposes.
How to quantify your financing needs
As the small business owner and borrower, you are responsible for identifying the amount of money needed for specific purposes. Generally, the needs of your business will fall into two broad categories:
Expansion Capital – Used to finance business growth
Working Capital – Used to finance short term business cash needs
The first category is considered a permanent investment in the business, which means funds will be repaid to the lender over a period of time greater than one year. Working capital can be of a seasonal nature and repayable in less than one year according to the seasonal sales and cash flow patterns of your company. Permanent working capital may be a requirement, especially if your goal is to commit funds to a permanent buildup in working assets (accounts receivable and inventory) in support of sales growth, introduction of new product lines, or territorial expansion.
At TDECU Business Services, we fund dreams that make communities strong. So when a fourth-generation theater owner and a community development director joined forces to build a multi-million dollar family entertainment center in Bay City, we listened. Their dream was a “go-to-all-in-one” family fun center combining movies, bowling, dining and interactive amusements. The team at TDECU Business Services made it happen.
