• Why Your Character Matters to the 504 Loan Program

    In his play Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare asks the question, "What's in a name?" When you need business financing, such as a 504 Loan, it turns out your name is worth a great deal. Lenders decide if you are a good risk by assessing your credit. Although every lending situation is different, most lenders use the Five Cs of Credit to determine the level of risk.
