How a Micro Business Loan Can Work for You

Does your business need a little bit of cash to cover immediate expenses or needs? Are your cash flow needs small enough that you can’t justify taking out a large, long-term business loan? A micro loan could be right for you. Micro business loans give you the influx of cash your business needs in smaller amounts than most long-term business loans. You’ll repay the micro loan over a year or less, getting your business out of debt quickly.

FAQ: Micro Business Loans

Feeling confused as to whether a micro loan is a good fit for you? We’re here to help! We’ve put together some of the common questions business owners like you ask about micro loans, and provide straightforward answers.

What are micro loans for small businesses?
Micro loans are small cash loans that are generally repaid in a short period of time. For example, say your business cash reserves are low and you need to cover rent and utilities for a couple of months. A micro loan gives you just enough money to cover your expenses without putting you into deep debt with a long repayment period.
How can I get a small loan fast for my business?
National Funding makes it easy to apply for micro business loans. Simply fill out our online application and we’ll help you find the right micro financing your business needs. In some cases, we can fund your loan in as few as 24 hours1.
Is an SBA micro loan right for my business?
The SBA, or Small Business Administration, loan program works by partnering with various lenders. Since the SBA itself doesn’t provide loans, but rather goes through traditional lenders like banks, it can be difficult to get approved for a loan. You’ll probably need a good credit score and to meet certain strict financial requirements, even for a micro business loan.
