Show Your Business Plan and Have a Loan Opportunity

By: Aisha Cristal

People with an already established business who need money for an emerging company or a start-up business can get loans easily by traditional banks even if their credit score is below par. Banks more likely to approve loans for people with bad credit in the highly competitive UK loan market.

First, before approaching a lender for loans specific for bad credit borrowers, have all your key documents in order, starting with a solid business plan. You will also need to submit your most recent financial statements available, projections for the business and a repayment plan and the security. Security includes real estate possessions. Banks also want to confirm that you are making your own investment in the business.

A bank is more likely to approve bad credit loans if they see that the owners are investing a good percentage of the necessary start up capital into the business venture. To maximize your chances of receiving approval on loans, it would be wise to look at the situation from the viewpoint of the lender.

A lender would definitely want to know the following financial and personal details:

  • Exactly how your business will operate and why it is anticipated that it will make money.

  • Exactly how the money will be used for and what is the growth prospective.

  • How do you plan to repay bank loans and what will be the time frame for the repayment.

  • Assurance that you are willing to take a significant level of financial risk in the business.

  • Your willingness to be responsible and your ability to manage the business for perfection.

  • The number of people going to be involved in management or operations and their responsibilities for the appropriate use of the loan amount.


Getting approved for bad credit personal loans to expand business depends largely on the criteria and expectations of the lender. While one lender may say no, the next may say yes after evaluating the same loan request, business plan, credit rating and other necessary documentation. If you are denied a loan, you can still benefit from learning about your shortcomings and realising why you were rejected by a specific lender. You will also get to know which area or areas you need to work on for loan approval.

Once you have been approved for bad credit personal loans, you will need to work out the best possible terms suitable for you with your lender. The due date and manner of payment needs to be determined in advance. The detailed payment plan should be worked out according to your convenience.
