How important is your credit profile when applying for a small business loan?
The quick answer is "Very important". When it comes to small business lending, owners and their companies are seen as one-and- the- same. Small business owners generally exert a lot of influence over their company so lenders put a heavy emphasis on the owner's credit profile. The better your credit history and credit score (FICO), the better the chances you will get a loan; and, likely on better terms.
