“I offer the perspective of a former Main Street business owner sharing insights learned from my personal challenges finding capital, as well as industry insights learned while matching small business owners to small business lenders.”—Ty Kiisel

Burgeoning small businesses in the U.S. often face a similar paradox—they need a loan to grow their business, but they can’t get a loan without significant growth under their belt. Local bankers approve only 10% of business loan applications, often requiring three to five years in operation, hefty savings, and a credit score of at least 720. What these bankers don’t want business owners to know about are the numerous alternative funding options available. “Getting a Business Loan: Financing Your Main Street Business,” newly published by Apress Media, details how businesses across the country can take advantage of these choices to not only sustain their operations, but to thrive.

Author Ty Kiisel provides personal insight and anecdotes from his experience as a former small business owner. A writer for Lendio.com and Forbes.com, Kiisel imparts valuable lessons derived from both personal and professional experience. “I offer the perspective of a former Main Street business owner sharing insights learned from my personal challenges finding capital, as well as industry insights learned while matching small business owners to small business lenders,” he says. “Getting a Business Loan” details how bankers evaluate loan applications, the array of non-bank financing options available to business owners, how they can locate potential lenders, and the essential steps to take before applying for a loan.

Main Street businesses aren’t limited to local banks anymore. There are people and institutions all across the country that lend money to small business owners. “Getting a Business Loan” shows the millions of businesses that form the backbone of the American economy how to find the capital they need to succeed.
