Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is a revolving line of credit?

    A revolving line of credit works just like a credit card. This lending product is great for small businesses as it offers both convenience and flexibility. Unlike a term loan, you only pay interest on what you borrow. As you pay down your balance, your available funds increase. The funds can be used for virtually any business use.

  2. What are your loan amounts and terms?

    Currently, our lines of credit range from $5,000 - $50,000 and repayment will occur over 12 months (weekly payments).

  3. What information do I need to apply?

    Our simple, streamlined application takes about 10 minutes to complete. We ask for basic personal and business information. You can move quickly through the application if you have the following information handy:

    2. Tax ID / EIN (Employer Identification Number)
