Once you've determined that an SBA or traditional bank loan is the right kind of financing for your business, you'll need to package your financial information in a way that makes it easy for a banker to make a favorable decision. At the most basic level, you will need to provide:

- Basic information about the loan you are requesting
- Financial information about your business
