Begin your loan application today
The first step to accessing business finance is to fill in a loan application online on the Grofin website. Once we have received this application we will evaluate it and assign a manager to your case whose job it will be to guide you through the application and ensure your business plan is optimized for success and loan approval.
Know where your financial boundaries lie
As much as you might want your business venture to take off as quickly as possible. It will not help you or your organization if your enterprise is not financially stable to take a business loan. This means you need to be certain about your credit capacity.
The last thing you want is to give your business a negative name by failing to adhere to financial obligations you agreed to when you first applied for credit. There is no telling when you might need a loan again in the future so you need to do all that you can to ensure that you protect your credit profile.
When will I know if my business loan application was successful?
We don’t make our customers too long before we notify them about the status of their business loan. It usually takes us a few hours to get back on their applications. We know that clients usually want to make use of the money right away and that is why we don’t take too long to give them a response.
