The first thing you need to get access to a small business loan for your new clothing boutique is have a plan. As a new business, the lenders would want to know what you intend on doing with their money. A strong, convincing plan shows high chances of success. It shows you know where you are going. This would help assure the lender that giving you money is the right way to go.
Next, you need to have good credit ratings. While bad credit ratings would result in straight rejections, average ones come with higher interest rates. The more you pay in interest, the lesser you have for your business.
One alternative route for you could be to turn towards the Small Business Administration (SBA). However, for this to work, you must have exhausted all your financing possibilities. If you have not tried with banks first, your application will not be entertained by SBA. You must show that you cannot get funding elsewhere for SBA to help you.
One thing to ensure is that you know your lender through and through. There is no lack of lenders who tend to have certain terms and conditions that are initially not disclosed to you. This can come back and bite you in a major way. Yes, you need funds to get up and running, but you need them from a lender you can rely on.
