A bridge loan works by providing approved business applicants access to capital in a very fast and convenient way while the business attempts to secure permanent long-term financing. It gives businesses access to lump sum of capital during that gap between applying and getting approved for a long-term loan. Similar to a small business loan, with a bridge loan businesses may benefit from receiving funds in a lump sum with fixed payments and fixed terms. The main difference is that a bridge loan is considered a short-term loan while a small business loan is typically long-term.

Having bad credit does not automatically mean that your application for a commercial bridge loan financing will be denied. It is true that most small business funders may use credit as a factor when reviewing applications, however, your bad credit may not be a determining factor as to whether the application gets approved or not. The truth is that there are many factors that business funders may take into consideration when deciding to approve an application. Some of these additional factors may be and are not limited to the performance of the small business, which can be determined by the business revenue, the time in business, the accounts receivables, and the business credit history.
There are a few things to keep in mind before applying for a bridge loan. The first should be the reason why your business needs the loan, how much working capital does your business need, and lastly, the repayment terms that your business can afford. This will help you navigate whether your business needs a long-term loan or short term loan. Other things to keep in mind before applying is what your current credit score situation is (the higher the score the better), how fast do you need the funds, has your business been in operation for over two years, do you have over a year of business bank statements, etc. These will be some of the questions asked during the application process and depending on the response your business may or may not qualify for approval.
