Applying for a corporate loan

When you apply for a corporate loan or credit, it is important to keep in mind certain basic requirements for granting loans and credit. When making a loan decision, we consider your business idea, the purpose of the loan and your company’s financial standing, among others.

Your business idea, financial standing and the purpose of the loan play a key role

How to apply for a business loan? We want to support and help you turn your business idea into reality and grow your business. But first, we must know a little bit more about your business and your plans before we can offer a long-lasting finance solution for your company. Think of us as your business partners.
