HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2010 3 SBDC Preparing to ask for a loan By KIM T. BLUEHER, Director of Lending, WESST Asking for a loan is a type of negotiation. As with any negotia- tion, an entrepreneur is more likely to succeed if she under- stands the needs of the other party: the lender. It also helps to know the lan- guage of lending. A knowledge Of terms like assets, liability, net worth, gross or net profit, collat- eral, receivables, payables, amor- tize and depreciate tells the lender that a borrower understands the financial aspects of his business. Would-be borrowers will need to answer personal ques- tions about their credit history, business plan and personal stake in the business. Money matters Because a credit report car- ries weight with lenders consid- ering a loan request, borrowers should Check their report at least once a year to ensure the infor- mation is correct. A credit score is another number lenders will re- view as it shows how well a bor- rower has paid her debts. Borrowers with low credit scores and unflattering credit re- ports can still get loans if they can explain their circumstances to a lender's satisfaction. A bor- rower with a recent bankruptcy, tax liens, unpaid judgments, un- paid child support and student loan defaults, however, should resolve these more serious prob- lems before applying for a loan. Lenders also want to know the state of a borrower's personal and business finances. Most will request a personal financial state- ment, personal and business in- come tax returns and other finan- cial statements from the business. If the business is new, the lender will want to be sure it has few debts and enough cash flow for the borrower to make loan pay- ments. What's the plan? Entrepreneurs considering different types of loan require- ments should determine if they'll need to write a business plan to UPCOMING EVENTS Continued from Page 1 Veterans Wreaths The Lordsburg VFW is now taking orders for veteran wreaths as part of their annual Wreaths Across America campaign.

A good business plan takes time to research and write, but the investment can spell the differ- ence between success and failure for a business. A plan also shows a lender that an entrepreneur has thought through the most impor- tant aspects of starting a new busi- ness or expanding an existing venture. Many lenders require a busi- ness plan before approving a loan, but some lenders will waive this requirement. The owner's stake Lenders want to see what borrowers are risking in their own business, so they'll ask the bor- rower for collateral in the form of cash" or another valuable asset owned by the borrower or busi- ness, such as a car, equipment or equity in real estate. Some com- munity lenders allow collateral in the form of artwork, jewelry or other personal possessions the borrower is loath to lose. Borrowers are asking lenders to invest in something which the lender has no control, so it's only fair that lenders want assurance that borrowers will work hard to repay their loans. The Western New Mexico University Small Business Devel- opment Center (SBDC) offers as- sistance to entrepreneurs who are starting a business or wanting to expand an existing business. These services are available at no ,cost. Call 538-6320 for an ap- pointment with a business advi- sor, or email The SBDC office is located on the second floor of the Besse-For- ward Global Resource Center on 12th Street.
