The Need

The small business owner needs money quickly and at a low rate to open a new store and purchase equipment for existing operations.

Financing Solution

After reviewing the business and personal financials of the entrepreneur, Biz2Credit recommended taking a secured a line of credit against the strength of an existing store and the personal credit and net worth of the owner. A line of credit gave the franchisee the flexibility to use the money at any time, and not worry about incurring interest on the unused loan portion.

Biz2credit located a secured line of credit, specifically geared for business owners that own multiple S corps and that do not want to use the company to raise capital.
