Check Your 5 C's of Financing
The 5 C's of Financing is how we at Business Impact NW make our investment decisions.
Each is important individually, but a lender looks at the overall risk to make a determination if you qualify for a loan.
Do you have a demonstrated desire to repay debts? Do you have the ability to do what you say you are going to achieve?
Do you have the ability to achieve performance in the business?
Do you have an adequate capital/equity injection to qualify? BIN requires you to contribute at least 20% of the requested financing amount into your business.
Is there sufficient collateral to fully secure the loan?
Does your business have the ability to generate adequate cash to repay the requested loan?
Next, fill out your Personal Financial Statement. This will be important in assessing your "Character" - one of the 5 C's of Financing.
Finally, when you're ready, fill out the Business Impact NW Loan Application online.
