Preparation is critical so please click on one of the links below to review the necessary documents to get started.
Once you have gathered and reviewed all the necessary documentation, we encourage you to apply and submit your application through our online application portal. Please note that loan applications that are fully complete will be prioritized.

Our loan processor will review your submission and assign your application to a loan officer. The loan officer will contact you to schedule a consultation to discuss the next steps of the application process.
It is during this time we will work with you to determine the following:
Your application is ready to be forwarded to our underwriter for decision processing
Additional information is needed to improve the quality of your application; or
If more education or training is needed, we recommend you connect with a member of our Business Management Consulting Team to help you improve your business financial profile and reapply!
As a non-traditional community-based lender, it is essential to note that we are here to help. We encourage you to be open and transparent regarding your personal and business finances. The more our loan officers and underwriters know about you and your business, the better it will be for us to explore ways we may be able to help you meet your funding goals.
Once your loan officer has determined your application is ready to move forward, our credit administrator will formally review and evaluate the completed loan package.
During this time, our underwriters will perform the analysis needed to decide if we will be able to move forward with your loan request. The underwriting process will include but not be limited to reviewing your personal and business finances and personal credit. Most importantly, please make sure you are accessible during this stage in the loan process. Our underwriters may have additional questions or require additional information to support further or finalize their decision. It is also here where we will validate your rate, terms, and loan fund.
Please note that our loan requests are subject to the approval of our Loan Committee, which provides final approval to all of our loan packages. Once your underwriter receives the Loan Committees’ approval, the loan will be ready for closing.
Once your loan has been approved, we will send you a congratulatory email, and our loan closer will contact you directly to discuss the closing process and schedule your closing.
Business management consulting, education, and training are required for all of our borrowers throughout the life of the loan. This is an integral part of how we will help your business continue to grow, and it is here where we will partner with you to ensure that you receive the coaching and business management tools you need to make sound financial decisions.
