When you apply for a loan, be prepared to provide as much information as you can. You’ll need a budget, a business plan and a cash-flow statement when you apply for a loan. Be prepared to list credit references, even if you don’t have a perfect credit history. Include present and past creditors. Show the lender that you are a business owner first and an operator second.
