What are the 5 Cís of Credit? 

The 5 Cís of credit help assess credit risk and are used by many lenders to evaluate potential borrowers. Knowing about these 5 Cís: character, capacity, collateral, capital, and conditions, and what your bank is looking for will help prepare you to recognize what is most important in a lenderís eyes.

Whether you're starting from scratch or expanding your business, want to buy new equipment, purchase land, improve an existing location,or to just give your business a little breathing room, a loan can help your business in a variety of ways. Knowing what lenders are looking for ahead of time can mean the difference between being accepted or rejected.
