Small Business Loans FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Small Business Loans

    What is a personal guarantee?

    Loan services will request a personal guarantee from the business owner to secure the loan. This type of guarantee assigns personal responsibility for the loan to the business owner, meaning if the business cannot repay the loan then the owner will be responsible for doing so.
