Here is your latest issue of BM$ Success Newsletter – the companion newsletter to the "Business-Money-Source" website.

5 Reasons Commercial Loans And Large Project Loans Are Not Funded (Part 5 of 5)

5) Applying To The Wrong Lender/Investor/Broker

This is the final installment in a five part series printed in the BM$ Success Newsletter. Hopefully, this instructional series has and will help business loan seekers, like you, better understand some of the pitfalls to avoid when applying for different kinds of business funding. You may read the previous four parts by going to the Business Money Source website at this link: Back Issues for BM$ Success Newsletter Every business lender/investor is not interested in making a loan to your business! This may at first come as a surprise to you but most private business lenders have certain types of loans that they make to certain types of businesses. If you submit your loan application to a lender or investor who is does not make the kind of loan that you need or is not interested in lending to your kind of business, you will get a polite “no” or “not interested” from the lender without much of an explanation of why you were denied financing.

Knowing which lender/investor to present your loan proposal to is probably the most critical step in getting business financing. In hindsight, submitting your loan proposal to the correct lender probably should have been Part 1 instead of Part 5 of this series. If you don’t get your loan proposal to the correct lender or investor, you will not achieve your business funding goals.

How Working With A Business Funding Consultant Can Improve Your Chances Of Getting Business Funding

The average small business owner doesn’t have the time or knowledge to research the local, regional, national and international sources of funding for his/her business loan, compare rates and terms offered by these many funders. The whole loan application process can become confusing with certain types of projects. A professional business-funding consultant, like Business Money Source LLC, will work with you to arrange the correct financing for your business.

What Are Some Kinds Of Lenders & Investors?

The limits of this newsletter precludes going into details of the many lenders and investors but it will cover the general categories. Your business-funding consultant will help you make the final determination on what funding source will most likely be receptive to your funding proposal.

The two general kind of funding sources that you will most likely come into contact with during your funding search are conventional lenders (national banks, credit unions, community banks) and private lenders (investment bankers, insurance companies, pension funds, wealthy individuals) The major difference between conventional and private lenders is that conventional lenders are closely regulated by government authorities. Therefore, conventional lenders, such as your local bank, are restricted to the kinds of loans they can make. They also must follow strict guidelines to qualify borrowers by evaluating factors such as credit ratings, length of time in business and the kind of business. Conventional lenders cannot deviate from the regulations imposed on by regulatory agencies.

Private lenders on the other hand, have much more leeway in qualifying business owners and on the kinds of loans they can make. This does not mean that they will be careless in risking their money. You still must present a professional loan proposal that makes economic sense to the lender/investor.

A word of caution is appropriate here. There are numerous private lenders with hundreds of kinds of programs, which means also there are many opportunities for misrepresentations by those lenders/investors with questionable ethics. This is all the more reason to use the services of a business-funding consultant such as Business Money Source. Business Money Source has working relationships with reputable private lenders/investors at the local, regional, national and international levels. These are committed funding professionals who are willing to provide viable funding.
