Small Business Loan Applications- Why Are They Asking Me That?

Business Portal Events There are more financing options for small businesses available today than ever before, and that includes online lending. What differentiates online lenders from traditional lenders, like banks, is that online lenders typically have a quicker and easier process, from application to funding—making the application process a day or two rather than weeks or months with traditional lenders. What’s more, many online lenders do not require a business plan or specific assets be identified as collateral to secure the loan. Category: Business. Area: All.

Feast of Assumption

Days of Commemoration The Feast of the Assumption is celebrated on August 15. The Eastern Orthodox Feast celebrates the Dormition of the Theotokos with a 14-day fast prior to the Feast of the Assumption. The Dormition is the period of Mary's time among the dead before her Assumption. Eastern Orthodox Christians believe that Mary died and was later resurrected from the dead, before being assumed into Heaven. Many Catholics also believe this, but many others believe she never died and was assumed into Heaven while alive. Eastern (Roman) Catholics also observe the Dormition as well as the Assumption.

Small Business Loan Applications- Why Are They Asking Me That?

Business Portal Events There are more financing options for small businesses available today than ever before, and that includes online lending. What differentiates online lenders from traditional lenders, like banks, is that online lenders typically have a quicker and easier process, from application to funding—making the application process a day or two rather than weeks or months with traditional lenders. What’s more, many online lenders do not require a business plan or specific assets be identified as collateral to secure the loan. Category: Business. Area: All.
