You can step into a bank and get out empty handed and not because you don’t deserve the loan but actually because of the manner in which you have packaged your application. In order to help you get the loans you want, we have created a few tips.

Getting In The Mind Of A Lender - Three Things To Note

Are You Legit?

Banks won’t lend money to just anyone and as part of their risk assessment plan, they will do a lot of background checks to ensure you are trustworthy.  Most of the time, because of this rigorous background checks there is every chance that the banks will know everything related to your loan application. So what does this tell you? Well, it’s simple, if you are going to borrow money from a lender you have to be truthful. It doesn’t matter how bad it looks from your end, if you are going to get a loan you need to be honest with the information you have provided.

Can You Pay The Loan Back?

This is always the big elephant in the room. The bank wants to know if you have the capacity, the will, and the required discipline to repay the money lent. There are a number of ways a bank will use to try and see whether you can repay the loan or not. To start with, the bank will assess your earnings and your assets. Most of the time, people who have good earnings and reasonably good assets will get an upper hand in loans. The second thing is the credit score. This assesses your discipline over the years in repaying loans. Banks also have their own internal risk assessment procedures that will inform whether the applicant will be granted the loan or not. At the end of the day, a bank will only lend money to someone they feel will repay as per the agreed terms.

The Debt Burden

If you are a business just looking to get on your feet, there is a chance perhaps you have borrowed quite some money. While debt is not a problem in a business context, there has to be a clear cut management plan that ensures the loans are serviced without putting the business at strain. The bank will want to know your existing debts and the burden they are placing on your cash flow. If the burden is too much, then you may have a hard time getting the money that you are looking for.
