Access to Money Made Easier.
For Starting a Business? Working Capital? Purchasing Property, Equipment, Fixtures, Inventory? Learn how to find sources in three easy steps.
SCORE is excited to join the Small Business Administration in announcing LINC, an Internet-based referral tool designed to connect you with participating SBA Approved Lenders in our area.
Using the tool you can quickly and easily find lenders who provide loans of up to $5 million with favorable rates and payment terms as long as 25 years.
All you have to do is complete a short online questionnaire. The responses to that questionnaire are forwarded to participating SBA Lenders that operate within our county. If lenders are interested in the referral you will hear from them within 48 hours and contact information will be exchanged.
The questionnaire is not a loan application and completing it takes only a few minutes. SCORE mentors are available free of charge to assist you, answer your questions and guide you through the process of handling the responses and going to the next step of dealing with the prospective lenders.
There is no cost or obligation to using LINC and it can be done repeatedly. In addition to finding the lenders, the process helps you to learn what you need to know and do to give yourself the best chance of getting the money you need.
