1 Getting a loan to Start your Business What do you need? What does a lender look for?

2 Small Business Lending and Support Program Ø Community Capital New York is the leading not-for-profit small business lender in the Hudson Valley. Ø Our lending process is timely, personalized and intended to help those small businesses that need financing to launch or grow their business but cannot meet the credit and/or collateral requirements of Banks. Ø Our rates are low, we accept a broad range of credit scores (600 +) and alternative forms of collateral. Ø Our lending decisions are made locally by our loan committee comprised of lenders and entrepreneurs. 2

3 Ø CCNY lends $1,000-$50,000 to start-ups and existing businesses that banks are unable to consider Ø Loans may be used for equipment, inventory, marketing, working capital, permits, licenses, energy savings upgrades and business acquisition Ø CCNY provides term loans with a maximum repayment period of 6 years Ø CCNY borrows money to loan to YOU so we have to get paid back or we can t help others 3

4 Business Sectors Funded

5 General Requirements Ø Applicants need a Business Plan Ø Must be the principal and effective owner of the business Ø Must be 21 years of age Ø Own a business in Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Dutchess, Putnam, or Ulster counties Ø Meet CCNY s minimum credit criteria 5

10 Loan Application timing Ø Loan requests are on a monthly time table: Ø Loan application packages are received in the beginning of the month Ø Staff underwrites the loan request and does a site visit with the applicants Ø If basic criteria are met, applicants meet with the loan committee who makes the final decision on the loan request at the end of the month Ø Closing can take place about 5 10 business days after approval 10

11 Business Viability Ø Strong business plan: Ø Does your plan demonstrate an opportunity to succeed? Ø Does it show that you have carefully researched your market, the competition, costs and prices?
