The commercial financing landscape is notorious for being complex to navigate, especially for small businesses. And we know, because we live and breathe it every day—and help our customers navigate it with ease.
When we started Cornerstone Capital Lending, our goal was to make small business loans more accessible to business owners across the nation and ensure the best experience through the process. With 80 percent of small business loans applications getting rejected, there’s no question about what obstacle many entrepreneurs are currently facing. The reality is that 90 percent of small businesses fail in their first years, too often from a lack of funding.
Yet funding for small businesses is on the rise. The Small Business Administration reported that from 2013-2014, the number of small business loans grew from 5 million to 5.6 million, valued at 206 billion and 213 billion, respectively. We’re proud to have helped contribute to this by helping our clients achieve the funding they need—whether SBA, conventional or otherwise.
Not sure if you’re ready for the funding process? Check out these customer stories, which showcase how easy, transparent and successful the commercial finance process can be when you have an expert partner in your corner.
Small business owner #1
This client was in need of an SBA 7(a) loan, and had been referred to us by an acquaintance. As soon as we spoke with the client, we knew we could help. Our experts stepped in to guide the process and secure a loan with the rates and terms that worked for the client. After quickly finalizing the loan agreement in February, the client was eager to recommend our services to anyone seeking a loan. When asked about what stood out about our services, the client cited “a great level of professionalism” from our team.
Small business owner #2
This client had come across our website as he searched out an SBA 7(a) loan. Like many small business owners, he needed to hold on to as many of his liquid assets as possible to fund his plans and improve his property. But because of the complex nature of his loan, he had repeatedly been turned down by other lenders. When our team got involved, we secured him the loan he needed, and at a much lower down payment than he had expected. He was impressed by the fact that we were more than talk, and that we “delivered on all promises.”
Satisfied customers are some of our greatest assets, and the reason we’re still in business after all these years. We’re in the business of helping businesses grow. And the only way to truly do that is to streamline and simplify the confusing loan process—and do it with professionalism, ease and a helping hand.
