Are you ready for a business loan?
We're ready to help you get ready.Pathway Lending is not a bank. We are are a Community Development Financial Institution. We lend to businesses in communities where capital can have a real impact! We lend to create and support opportunities and therefore may not be as rigid as a bank when it comes to approving business loans. That said, we are a lender—and, we want to ensure a loan will help your business thrive.
A credit score is an important factor when it comes to lending. Credit scores reflect how well you manage your money—namely, debt. Our loan clients typically have a credit score above 580.
GrowthAlthough there are a lot of complexities in your business and lending, if you were to distill down what lenders are looking for, the answer is growth. Will this capital help your business grow?
ProfitabilityTo take growth one-step further, really what a lender is looking for is profitable growth. Why? A profitable business can repay debt! A healthy growing business is a profitable business.
ReturnReturn on Investment (ROI) is something business owners understand. Think of a lenders role when analyzing your answer to this question; they're translating your answer into "What is the return?" Both in terms of business growth and reducing the risk of losing the money on loan.
We believe in your business—and, we're dedicated to getting you the capital you need to grow.
