Infographic: Line of credit vs small business loan

You’ve likely heard of a small business loan, but how about a business line of credit? Here’s a quick rundown of the difference between these two business finance options.

Small business owners are used to investing in their business’s growth with their own hard work, but there are times when that’s not enough.

Having access to external funding can often make or break businesses that need to cover cash flow gaps that are out of their control. Funding can also be an essential ingredient for business owners looking to take on a new growth opportunity.

The array of finance options can be dizzying, but the good news is that technology has made it more accessible than ever before.

Banks aren’t the only option available, with lenders like Prospa specialising in the specific needs of small businesses and providing funding more quickly and with as much flexibility as possible.

For most small businesses, two common finance products that can serve their needs are a small business loan and a business line of credit.

So how do you decide which facility to use?
