Think of a line of credit as “sidelined cash”, there when you need it. It’s the perfect funding mechanism to capitalize on opportunities or quickly solve emergencies.
We offer lines of credit for businesses earning $6,000 to $100,000 a month in sales. This is a great tool to add to your capital stack, because it does not interfere with existing financing, because it is unsecured.
The annual percentage rate (APR) on the lines of credit are as low as 5.99% and as high as 13.99%. The pricing is largely based on your personal credit score, however, your payment history is not reflected on your personal credit.
The lender will automatically take out weekly payments from your bank account, so you don’t have to worry about setting up a wire or writing and sending a check. This allows you to focus on what you do best: grow your business.
You don’t have to take any money once you’re approved for a line of credit. However, there is a $20 monthly maintenance fee, which is waived with an initial draw of $5,000. The best part is, you only pay for what you use.
Payments (and missed payments) get reported to the credit bureau agencies under your business file, not your personal file. Therefore this is a great way to re-establish and build business credit in order to obtain future financing.
