Why Funding Circle?

Funding Circle was created with a big idea: to revolutionize the outdated banking system and secure a better deal for small businesses. We passionately believe that when small businesses succeed, everyone benefits. To help your business thrive, we’ve taken the best parts of an SBA loan – like fixed and affordable once-monthly payments and no prepayment penalties – and created something faster and more flexible. From accountants and jewelers to bakers and filmmakers, we’ve helped thousands of businesses secure the financing they need to grow, create jobs, support local communities, and drive the economy forward.

Frequently Asked Questions
After you submit your financial documents an underwriter will review your application. Our underwriters look at what we call the the 5 Cs of credit:
  • Capacity: Your current cash flow, cash flow projections, and credit history.
  • Conditions: How you intend to use the loan and the state of your business’s industry
  • Capital: How much money you’ve invested in the business
  • Collateral: What type of assets and property you own
  • Character: Your business’ trustworthiness and stability
Your interest rate will be between 4.99% and 27.79%. Your rate is based off the term length of the loan and the strength of your credit profile. We know that a credit score isn’t the only indicator of a healthy business, so we consider a number of other factors when considering a loan application, from real–time cash flow and credit scores to online customer reviews.
Generally, the shorter the loan term, the lower the interest rate, and the higher the monthly payment.
The total cost of the loan is the total amount you would repay over the loan term. This includes the amount you borrow, the origination fee, and the total interest paid over the loan term.
Our business loans are fully amortizing term loans. Your monthly payment is based on the loan amount, the term length, and the interest rate. Upon approval, we will give you an amortization schedule of your loan showing you the due date of each payment, the monthly payment, the amount of the monthly payment applied to the loan principal and the amount applied to interest, and the remaining loan balance.
Just like your interest rate, your origination fee will be determined during our underwriting process and is based on the strength of your credit profile.

We believe in transparency. We charge an origination fee on each loan we fund, ranging from 0.99% to 6.99%. There are no hidden fees or prepayment penalties with your Funding Circle business term loan, meaning your application and consultation with our dedicated loan specialists is absolutely free. If you change your mind, you can walk away obligation-free.

Once you have accepted a loan offer from Funding Circle, we do charge 10% on late payments. This amount covers our additional costs, including any bank processing fees, and the rest is passed on to our investors. If you think you might not be able to make a scheduled payment, please reach out to as as soon as possible at loanquestions@fundingcircle.com. We will do our best to understand your situation and work with you on a solution.

We require a lien on your business assets and a personal guaranty from the primary business owners. We have no rigid guidelines regarding collateral; home equity, vehicles, equipment, accounts receivable, and cash savings or deposits can all be used as collateral.
