Accessing small business financing can be the bane of many small business owners. Traditional banks are not there for start-ups and small business owners who have only been in business for a short period of time. Traditional banks generally require substantial collateral for small business loans applications and even then, there is no guarantee of approval.

So where does that leave your business startup and your need for a bank loan?

If you need a small business loan and your startup has no sales history, your only option is non-traditional banking sources. That’s where the good news lies. The advent of online banking and peer-to-peer lending tends to cater to small business and startups.

The internet has opened up many options for small business owners like you, most online banks offering a wide range of loan options for small businesses.
