Fast Small Business Funding for Low Credit Scores

Getting small business funding is hard under the best circumstances, and it’s even tougher when you have a low personal or business credit score. Whether your credit is low because of your personal financial history or your business hasn’t had a chance to accrue a strong business credit history, bad credit can overshadow even the strongest business finances, especially if you are applying for funding from a traditional lender.

With a simpler application, faster turnaround, and flexible approval requirements, Greenbox Capital can fund more businesses with low credit in as little as one business day. We offer a variety of small business funding options for low credit scores, from as little as $3,000 up to $500,000. We fund all industries, including healthcare businesses, medical practices, law firms, retail stores, business services, restaurants, and more.

Business Funding for Low Credit Scores Rates

Small business funding rates for businesses with low credit scores depend on the type of funding you receive. Lower credit scores may result in higher rates, but ultimately your fees will be based on your business’s risk assessment and how quickly you are able to repay the funding.

Will You Qualify for Business Funding with Low Credit?

The best candidates for small business funding with low credit are prepared with a firm understanding of how much funding they need, what they plan to do with it, and how they plan to repay it.

The minimum credit score and other qualification requirements will depend on the type of funding you are seeking. Collateral is not required for most forms of alternative small business funding, including merchant cash advances for low credit.

  • Business revenue

  • Vendor payment history
  • Years in business
  • Public records

Low Credit Funding Q&A

How can I get a business loan with bad credit?

Direct online lenders are the best place to get a business funding with bad credit. These lenders have more flexible approval requirements that consider the overall health and potential of your business—not just your credit score—and offer revenue-based financing options that are more ideal for businesses with lower credit scores, such as merchant cash advances for low credit. Contact one of our Funding Advisors to learn more.

Can I get a business loan with a 500 credit score?

Yes, you may be able to get a business loan from an alternative lender with a 500 credit score, depending on your business’s revenue and cash flow. Some direct online lenders will approve funding for a 500 credit score, but take the time to thoroughly research your lender to ensure they are reputable, and never work with a lender that engages in “loan stacking”.
