K-40 : The IWS Complete Business Plan Kit


Perhaps the most thorough and complete business plan kit on the Internet today, the IWS Business Plan Kit shows how to prepare a business plan to raise money for any business. It is complete with several examples of successful business plans.


Get Ready

Before you start talking to lenders, have a look at the abbreviated checklist below to see if you’re ready for a traditional SBA loan.

  • Business plan. Most lenders expect a business plan when you apply for startup funding. If you need to create one, follow our free business plan guide.
  • Amount and use of funds. Know how much capital you need and how it will help your business. You can’t use an SBA-approved loan to flip a house.
  • Credit history. Lenders use credit scores to determine credit risk and interest rates. SBA helps guarantee some loans that otherwise may not qualify.
  • Financial projections. Show you understand your business’ finances, how the funds will be used, and how you’ll pay back the loan.
  • Collateral. Many lenders require you to use another asset to guarantee your loan. This can be a home, car, inventory, or other property you own.
  • Industry experience. Industry experience isn’t required, but it’s helpful. Firsthand knowledge about your industry can make your lender feel confident about making a loan.
