“The Propel Loan really made all this possible. From purchasing our equipment, making the first payment on our lease, and taking care of labor, the Propel Loan truly propelled us. We’ve been able to bring a lot of different people into the fold, and I’ve gone from being a small business owner to a small business owner with employees.”

Michael Spencer, Owner, Nash Dogs


Going for a small business loan can be hard, especially for first-time and credit-building borrowers. With the Propel Loan, you're always in the pilot's seat with up-front requirements, expedited funding, monthly payments not daily draws, and fixed, not variable, rates.


The Propel Loan offers a 12.5% fixed rate with a term of 36 or 60 months (plus a 3% fee for payoff before month 36). Use loan proceeds as working capital so you can fund general operations.


The Propel Loan is designed to count owners in so they can access the funds they need to move their businesses forward. We believe monthly revenue is a stronger predictor of staying power than credit score and time in business, especially for first-time or credit-building borrowers.


The Propel Loan application keeps it simple. The streamlined application asks for a one-year tax return and 3 monthly bank statements. No business plan required.


Choosing a Propel Loan gives you more than the capital that comes with a loan. When you become a client with Pathway Lending, you'll build your capacity, too.
