  • Do you need to purchase new equipment?
  • Are you looking to expand your business, or start a new product line?
  • Are you thinking about purchasing a franchise?
  • Will you be purchasing, remodeling or expanding a building?
  • Does your business require a working capital line of credit?

While the credit criteria may have changed, adequate sources of capital still remain available.
