What is a Business Expansion Loan?

Business expansion loans are a specific type of business loan that helps companies make decisions that can help their business grow before it's too late. These loans can help add new staff, pay for marketing campaigns, and add new products to prepare for growth. Using these loans gives small businesses more room to grow. Small businesses often wait until they have enough cash flow to expand, but then it becomes too late and they struggle to keep up with the demands with the resources they have.

How Business Expansion Loans Work

Business expansion loans work to give companies financing in the form of equipment financing, SBA loans, merchant cash advances, invoice financing, and more. By leveraging assets the business already has, they can borrow against them to give them the funds they need to expand right now.

Use Cases
