When you meet with a lender, you are marketing your business. It is perhaps the most important sale you will ever have to make. Be prepared to answer a variety of questions, such as:

  • How much are you looking for?
  • What will the money be used for?
  • How will the loan benefit your business?
  • How will you pay back the loan?
  • Are you a good credit risk?
  • What happens if your business fails and you can't repay the loan?

Most of these answers should be readily available, particularly if you have carefully prepared a business plan and a financial loan package.
