Does anyone know the current typical terms?  8% interest?  I am considering borrowing $40k.  How long are startup business loans usually for 4 years? 10years? 20 years?  I would obviously like to take the longest term possible to minimize the montly payment.

    It depends on what the loan is for. Can you provide some info on how you plan to allocate the $40k?

    It would be for a frachising fee mostly and other incidentals (advertising, etc.)  I have some liquid capital but I would prefer to take a loan rather than exhaust my savings.  Thanks.

    Generally, the term of a business loan is around 7 years. If the purchase of real estate is included in the loan - this can extend it out to 20+ years.
    Interest rates will range from prime plus 1 to plus 5 depending upon many factors.
    NOTE: generally most companies offer some type of financing to the folks who purchase a new franchise.
    Send me a PM if you want to discuss your specific needs.

    Good explanation from Robertj. He`s right about the franchise companies as well. Typically, they will have some type of vehicle that can help you with financing.
    Regarding your "liquid capital," chances are you will have to use that to get a loan. Banks require some skin in the game.
    Good luck!

    Give me a break - a $500,000 unsecured loan? Even with a 720+ FICO, no collateral. Granted you say "... up to $500K."
    Besides, how legit can you be by suggesting contacting a gmail account?

    It depends on the type of loan and there are various types of loans available, all you need to provide is worthy collateral.

    The signs are everywhere. Students, women, yuppies , the unemployed, those facing a mid-life crisis, and a whole lot of other categories have succumbed to the e-bug ., the environment has never been more conducive . Of course, the risks associated with start-ups remain, with more than 50% of all start-ups failing within the first five years. It's just that landing funds to fuel your venture is easier than ever before.

    A loan term is a time it will take for a loan to be taken care of when the borrower is making customary installments. The time it takes to dispense with the obligation is a credit's term. Loans can be a present moment or long-haul notes.

    A loan's term influences your regularly scheduled installment and your interest costs. In a long-term loan method, you'll pay less in the head every month because the aggregate sum you acquired separately over more months, so it tends to be enticing to pick one with the longest term accessible.
