Alternatives to High Risk Business Loans
High-risk business loans are offered by banks to finance businesses in what they classify as risky industries, or for owners with rocky credit histories. Some of these business owners may not have personal issues, but still must apply for specialized business loans because of the nature of their industries.

Liquid cash when you need it in a few easy steps, even for high risk clients.
Business owners who are trying to start their next steps or move on a limited time situation may not be able to take money out of their personal savings or current cash flow. If they are in industries classified as high risk, then it may take them an unacceptably long time to get approved for a high risk business loan.
A merchant cash advance is easy to apply for. By filling out the form, a helpful representative will call you shortly to assist you in completing the few steps towards having liquid cash appear in your bank account in as little as 48 hours.
When we grant you funding, we are effectively purchasing a portion of your future sales. Cash amounts range from $1,000 to $1,000,000.
Once your initial amount is 70% repaid, you have the option of refinancing for up to 200% of what you were originally cleared for.
A good example of what a merchant cash advance can do is an owner of a trucking business who gets an offer to ship more than his current fleet can handle. By getting direct capital, he can afford a new truck to handle the larger shipment, and then pay back the advance as a percentage of the increased sales he makes. If he had applied for a high-risk business loan, he may not have been able to obtain the money he needed in time to profit on that opportunity.
If you have a high-risk designation from banks, don't let it hold your business back any longer.
