Small Business Financing

If your business has been operating for at least a year and is, in general, a healthy business which shows a potential likelihood for sustainability or even growth, you may qualify for a small business loan up to as much as “$500,000.00” (paid back over 3 – 36 months) or a line of credit for up to “$100,000.00” (paid back over 6 – 12 months).
