What types of business funding are available?
Idea Financial offers two types of business financing. The first is a small business loan
. This is a loan for a set amount of time with a static APR. Businesses can use these loans for most company-related expenses and pay the loan back in regular installments.
The second option we offer at Idea Financial is a line of credit. This is a set amount of money that can be accessed on-demand via our online business portal. You can take what you need when you need it and you only pay interest on what you use. Plus, each time you withdraw funds it restarts your repayment period.
With these two options, you can streamline your business's cash flow and afford to invest in your company while still managing your monthly expenses.
Do I qualify?
To qualify for one of your funding options, you must meet our 4 eligibility requirements. If you are able to do this, we can consider your application.
- First, your business must have been running for at least 2 years. This provides us with enough financial history to understand your ability to pay back anything you borrow. It also shows your business is stable. This is important as it helps build our confidence in you as a borrower.
- Second, your business must not be a sole proprietorship or non-profit. We do not currently provide financing for these business types.
- Third, you must earn at least $15,000 in monthly revenue. This shows us that you have a steady cash flow and proves that you should be able to afford your regular repayment schedule.
- Fourth, you must have a personal credit score of at least 650. This helps us assess your ability to repay any finance and gives us an indication of your creditworthiness.
If you meet all of these criteria, we will be happy to consider you for a business loan or line of credit. We pride ourselves on our inclusive lending and offer business loans for minorities, women
and businesses of all types. Simply fill out our application.
