Fundia vs CAN Capital

Best Business Loans

With all the difficulties in today's economy, many people are choosing to open their own business instead of working for a traditional employer. Whether you're just starting your business, expanding your already-established business, or even hanging out a shingle as an online company, it's likely that at some point you'll need a business loan to successfully meet your customer's needs and your business goals.

In the past, small business owners relied heavily on traditional brick-and-mortar banks in order to finance their business loans. Often that meant that borrowers had to rely on their own reputation and relationship with their local bank. Getting the lowest possible interest rate was also more challenging, since there were few lending options from which to choose.

Fundia

FUNDIA Visit Site

Based in Utah, Fundia Credit & Capital focuses on small business lending and is one of the few companies in our review who include startups in their group of potential borrowers. Focused entirely on small businesses, including entrepreneurs, their desire to help their borrowers succeed is evidenced by the 12 months of free counseling they provide in order to help their customers effectively manage their credit lines.

Borrowers can receive a loan of up to $200,000 with same-day approval. Unfortunately, there is nothing on Fundia's site that allows prospective borrowers to get even an estimated loan amount or an interest rate, so it is difficult to compare Fundia with other lenders in our review, with respect to affordability.

One significant difference in the Fundia process is the requirement to sign up for a credit score report through Credit Check Total (which costs $1). Applicants can either provide their Credit Check Total login information or upload a PDF of the score report. Once the applicant has entered their basic business information and total desired loan amount, along with the credit score report, he or she can be pre-approved for the Fundia process. Because Fundia doesn't require security in the form of collateral, such as real estate or equipment, they do expect at least one of the business partners (either the borrower or another partner in the business) to have a credit score of 680 or higher.

Despite a relatively short history - having been established in 2015 - Fundia is an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau, with not only an A rating but also eight positive customer reviews and no negative ones. While the lack of any detailed information regarding interest rates or fees makes it hard to determine Fundia's ranking on an apples-to-apples basis with other lenders, we're very impressed with their positive reviews with the BBB and their willingness to not only lend to startups but to partner with them to help them succeed. We give Fundia four stars, and would easily raise that score if more detailed information regarding rates and fees proved to be competitive with other lenders in the business loans market.

Can Capital

CAN CAPITAL Visit Site

Established in 1998, Georgia-based CAN Capital offers business loans ranging from $2,500 to $150,000 or more with terms from 4-24 months. CAN Capital focuses specifically on small business owners, with tools, resources, and blog posts directed towards helping them to grow their businesses and succeed.

Unfortunately, CAN Capital is not one of the lenders in our review who make business loans to startups: they require borrowers to have been in business for at least four months and have monthly revenue that is relatively stable.

The application process is relatively simple and is comparable to other lenders' in our review: enter basic information about the business, such as the gross monthly sales, number of months or years in business, and the business' location. Once the application is approved, funds can be sent is as little as two business days.

While CAN Capital doesn't publish their APR during any part of quote or application process, there is a calculator that allows prospective borrowers to enter the amount of their monthly sales, the desired loan amount and term, and see the weekday payment, principal amount and the total repayment amount. Of course, this is just an estimate; the final loan offered would naturally depend on the business' history, creditworthiness, and actual loan terms. Customers should make sure to read the fine print: both when we ran our own theoretical scenarios and when we considered CAN Capital's reviews, we saw interest rates around 30%, all the way up to 85%! Given that CAN Capital focuses on small businesses, particularly those who haven't been able to qualify for a traditional loan, we wonder if such high interest rates will actually help a business to succeed instead of being overburdened with (additional) debt.

Another possible downside of having a business loan with CAN Capital is the effect on one's personal credit; one customer complained that CAN Capital pulled a hard inquiry on their personal credit every six months for the duration of their loan, even though the customer had no late payments or any other issues with the loan.

On the other hand, CAN Capital has been accredited with the Better Business Bureau since 1998 and carries an A+ rating. In our opinion, this carries a great deal of weight and would indicate that, overall, CAN Capital is doing a good job of providing loans to almost 140,000 small businesses in ways that are honest and trustworthy.

Fortunately, business owners today can choose among many lenders to find the best terms and interest rates available. In addition to the old local options, small business borrowers now have much more and better choices through various lenders on the Internet that specialize in small business loans.

There are many factors that you should consider before selecting a lender for your business loan. Some of these include:

  • Loan size and rate. How much will you be allowed to borrow? What interest rates do they typically offer on loans of that size?
  • Loan application process. When applying for your business loan, can it be completed online? Is the lending process easy and straightforward?
  • Requirements for business history. Can a brand-new business take out a loan, or is there a minimum time that the business must have been in operation in order to qualify? What other verification and/or collateral is required to secure the loan?
  • BBB rating. Does the lender have an established history of good business practices?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Business Loan programs available today. We hope this information helps you find the best loan for your small business at an affordable rate!
