Online Marketplace Loans

Non-bank loans have become an increasingly popular alternative for borrowers who have been denied a loan by the bank, or don’t have the time to go through a lengthy application process. A new generation of online-only “marketplace loans” is designed to appeal to business owners who have lower credit scores, or who have been in business for a short time. These loans tend to have much higher interest rates than bank or SBA loans, and to have more lax credit score criteria. Typically, these loans are for 1 – 5 years and come with a fixed monthly payment. Online marketplace loans can be used for virtually any business need.
