Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult for businesses to get commercial loans, especially smaller businesses and start-up enterprises? There are a lot of factors that are attributed to this and whether or not a business gets approved for the funding they need.

Current Economic Landscape

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that since the economic downturn in 2008-09 that the number of small business loans and the amount of funds that have been approved have both decreased dramatically.  According to the US Census Bureau, between 2008 and 2010, nearly 200,000 small companies closed their doors while others couldn’t get the funding they needed for their start-up.

Furthermore, only 13% of the small businesses that applied for funding got the full amount of credit or financing that they applied for while only 36% were approved for a portion of the credit they needed.  Additionally, more than half of them were only seeking microloans (funds of $100,000 or less) to provide them with working capital.  Ironically, lenders turned down more microloan applications than what they did for much larger loan amounts.

Certain Factors cause Confusion

A lot of the problem can be attributed to the fact that different banks have different lending strategies which can be extremely confusing where the borrower is concerned.  Many banks were forced to preserve their capital by curtailing their lending activities as a result of the bog down with securitized loans and credit-deficit swapping.  Interestingly enough, roughly 70% of US small businesses did not apply for credit or loans this past year.  Whether it was because they didn’t need the capital or they just gave up and assumed that they would get turned down anyway is still a mystery.
