Things to consider before applying:

How much you really need to borrow.

Think very carefully about how much money you actually need to get things started; more isn’t necessarily better. Remember that you will need to repay the loan, so if you can get the same results while borrowing less its better for your business.

How well you understand your business.

Make sure that you have really thought about how you are going to find and convert customers into sales, and why people are going to buy what you are selling. Be sure to think about how you are going to create awareness, build customer loyalty, and what makes you different than your competitors
