Get Loan Ready: Preparing for a Business Loan
6:30 PM18:30

Get Loan Ready: Preparing for a Business Loan

Rosewood Initiative16126 SE Stark St, Portland

Getting a loan involves more than just applying.  Preparing for a loan can be just as important as getting the money. We know the preparation process can be long, and possibly filled with apprehension, confusion, and fear.

Common concerns include:

What documents do I need?   *  Why are they asking confidential questions?   
Is my credit score high enough?  * What if I run into problems?  

This free workshop will take the mystery out of applying for a loan. It is designed to increase your odds for getting approved, by us or by any other lender. Join us to become better prepared for the loan process, from application to closing to repayment.
