Small Business Lending 101

Startup Whiteboard Upclose

This workshop will help you identify if and when you should consider a small business loan. We’ll talk about what it means to be a qualified loan candidate, cover the five C’s of credit and outline the steps you can take to prepare and secure a loan.

We will also talk about how to determine what kind of loan is the best fit for you: a government-backed SBA loan, a loan or line of credit from a bank or other financial institution, a cash advance from a merchant services provider, or a loan from an alternative lender.

This workshop will be taught by Pam DiPietro Hale, Vice President, Commercial Lending, Norway Savings Bank
