1. Submit your pre-application using our online form

This provides our team with information about your business and your capital needs so we can find the right funding for you. We will need to know the amount you are looking for as well as the purpose of the loan: Are you buying a business? Need a line of credit for your company? Looking for working capital or need to purchase equipment? Just select the option that most closely matches your funding needs! Click here to get to our pre-application form.


2Financial information checklist icon. Start collecting your business information.

While we process your pre-application, get ready to talk about your opportunity by gathering some important documents:

• Tax Returns, both for you personally and for your business for the last 2 years
• Current Year Financials (find info on what a Balance Sheet & Income Statement are here)
• Personal Financial Statement (get a Personal Financial Statement template here)

If you’re a new business and do not have some of the items listed above, a Pathway Lending staff member will contact you to learn more, so start gathering any helpful documents!
