How to Get a Business Loan Fast

If you have been in business for at least twelve months, there are many financial companies that will show you how to get a business loan fast. Although you can get this type of business loan in just a couple of days, it does come with some drawbacks.


Before You Apply

Evaluate your situation. Although you can get approved in 48 hours, you will not be able to get as much money as you would with a regular business loan. You can get your money within 7 days, but you will pay a higher interest on your loan. The reason that you pay a higher interest rate is because you will not be subjected to a credit background check and you will not need to provide your credit history, therefore you are a higher risk to the lender. 

Applying For a Fast Loan


The fastest way to get a fast business loan is by applying online. Companies such as Merhcant Exchange, FastUpFront, and Busines Funders provide online applications and do not ask for a processing fee or collateral. The application will require you to describe your business and provide basic demographic information. Look for dependable companies with financial security and market longevity.  

Alternative Option

If you do not want to apply for a fast business loan, but still want to get a business loan quicker than usual, there are a few steps that you can take. Basically, the more prepared that you are when you meet with a lender the faster you will be approved. If you can prove to a lender that you are dependable, intelligent, and have the potential to be successful, he or she will be more likely to approve you fast.  Make a solid business plan, determine projections of your cash flow, have all of your financial papers organized, and you will seem less risky to a lender.
