How it Works
A business line of credit is similar to a consumer credit card. Upon approval you are granted access to a pre-determined amount of financing, which is determined by the lender. Like a credit card, you don't begin accruing interest or have minimum monthly payments until you spend against the line of credit specifically. Small business lines of credit can be secured or unsecured, meaning it is possible to get a line of credit with little or no collateral. As a revolving loan, a business line of credit is a credit account that your business can draw against over and over, up to your total credit limit. Lines of credit generally have lower starting rates than traditional business loans, but have much harsher interest penalties for late payment.

Qualifying for a Small Business Line of Credit
A line of credit loan is one of the most common ways in which businesses work with creditors. Because of popularity of this type of loan, nearly every financial institution offers a line of credit loan, so qualifying is often very straightforward. Lenders typically use things like time in business, revenue, and business history to determine the credit line that is extended. It is important to keep in mind that not all lenders review the same requirements for approval, and often times working with a bank that specializes in your industry will result in higher credit lines.
