What to do if the bank says NO to my loan?

Well, there are alternatives to the house bank!

Well, there are alternatives to the house bank!

In the case of loans for small businesses and self-employed, one bank may refuse the application while another loan may grant a loan. In contrast to consumer loans for employees, banks sometimes have very different criteria for assessing the creditworthiness of self-employed and small companies. The applicant should therefore in no case accept the first offer. The credit comparison for corporate loans is particularly worthwhile. Thanks to the Internet, obtaining several offers is quick and easy.

Persistence pays off!

The applicant should not be intimidated in a bank refusal and seek offers from different credit providers. Recently, similar to consumer credit, this is also possible online with corporate loans. The Financial Technologies portals inancingent and financinga, the crowd lending platforms financingive, moneyor and creditend and the online corporate lenders Bon-Kredit and Pixocredit in our credit rankings for the self-employed, freelancers, traders and small companies prove to be helpful:

Further tip: specify the purpose of the loan!

Further tip: specify the purpose of the loan!

In the case of the self-employed loan, the applicant should better apply for a restricted loan instead of a loan for a purpose (free use of the loan amount). The purpose of the loan decision is relevant because, for example, when buying vehicles or real estate, they serve as collateral for the bank. If the credit obligations are not met, the bank could sell the financing object in an emergency.
