          Have you tried to get a small business loan from your local bank?

          If you have track records of your current store, you should try talk to your local bank first.

              YES, I HAVE TRIED TO GET A SMALL BUSINESS LOAN FROM MY BANK...BUT THE PROBLEM THAT IM RUNNING INTO IS THAT MY CREDIT IS NOT GOOD. WHEN I FIRST WENT INTO BUSINESS WE HAD $50,000.00 IN SAVINGS THAT I WAS ABLE TO USE FOR MY BUSINESS. IVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR YEARS NOW AND IM DOING REALLY GOOD BUT I WANT TO OPEN ANOTHER LOCATION TO EXPAND. IS THERE ANY WEBSITES OR BUSINESSES THAT WILL LOAN $5,000.00 TO A PERSON IN MY SITUATION?

                  There are many options for you. There are lenders that will lend small amounts to people/businesses in your situation. These are non-bank lenders who understand what you are going through. Try our site - Business money Today - no cost to use our site - lots of information and resources.

                  You can also think about consolidating your debt - even your unsecured or revoling debt (crdit card debt) - will help you free up your cash flow and improve your credit.

                        Judy:

                        First of all. Please do not use all upper case, which is hard to read. Thanks!

                        You don't have to have fully perfect business plan to get money. However, if you want to get money from bank, you will need to have business plan that shows how much you expect to grow and how much you project to earn. Bank only care about how much their will get back in the future, so they wants to know what they are up to.

                        Again, getting money from the bank is only one of the many ways to get funding. Search internet, you can find many angels out there looking for business to invest. Depends on what you are selling and your potential, you may get more than what you expect.

                        Any more detail on what you are selling?
