5 Steps to Financing Your Next Journey


Accessing Resources for the Future

You’re ready to open a small business, or grow the one you already have. This great opportunity takes patience, perseverance, and some extra cash.

Follow these steps to improve your odds of getting the financing you need – and accessing resources that will help you plan for the future.

Step #1: Find Your Lender

Make sure you work with a Preferred Lender (PLP). Lenders with extensive experience are granted PLP status by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and are able to make their own credit decisions, which expedites the approval process. PNC is a PLP Lender.
