"Tell me about your business." This seems too simple, right? This is the most common thing our lenders inquire about, and some the most unprepared responses we hear from business owners. A great response is a well-prepared Business Plan. Do you have a Business Plan? Does it include financial statements? If you do not have a business plan, you can start by exploring a Business Model or Lean Canvas.

A lot of interested business owners ask, "Is there a minimum credit score to get approved?" It's not that black and white. For traditional lenders, a minimum credit score can be 700+, varying a lot based on the lender's risk tolerance and lending criteria. For CDFI's like Pathway, the minimum credit score requirements can be much lower. For this opportunity, a 600 credit score is required.
Everyone loves taxes! Right? We know, even the word tax can bring on some stress as business owners. The reality is, a tax return is an easy way for a lender to get a good picture of your business and how much money you make through it. Our lenders will want to see three completed tax returns (both business and personal) for years 2020-2022.
