What is a small business loan?

Small business loans come in different shapes and sizes and serve different purposes. Whether you are a business owner, looking to expand your business or need cash flow solutions, there is a business loan suitable for you.

Small business loans can either be secured or unsecured. Secured business loans are guaranteed by an asset, such as a property or a car. On the other hand, an unsecured business loan does not require any security, hence, interest rates on unsecured loans are typically higher than that of a secured loan.
