You may find a tough time getting a loan from financial institutions with poor credit, even from SBA. SBA requires a number of factors to avail of their loans, and one of them is good credit history (see SBA Basic requirements… )

If you cannot get loans, try to get a loan from your parents, family and friends. If they cannot give you any, use your credit card. Credit card requires no collaterals but are an expensive source of funds.

Otherwise, either downscale your plans and amount of capital needed; or wait until your financial situation improves. From the article “How to Start a Business with Little Cash” here are some tips on how you can start a business and earn more money even if you are short of cash today:

1. Find a business that you can start for little money (e.g. Instead of a website that requires extensive programming, start slow such as starting a blog site using free software such as

2. Consider your time and effort – if you have little cash, you may have to work harder for the money because you will have no resource to outsource or employ others to do certain tasks for you; or you have no money to buy equipment so you can only do certain things the long way

3. Get your creative juices flowing. With no money, the only thing you have is your imagination. Be creative and find ways to get things done

4. Be prepared to do all the work yourself – from doing your business plan, finding financing, writing emails, shipping and handling, marketing or whatever processes your business requires.

5. Be prepared to invite investors – you may need financing help from someone down the road so be prepared to share some of the pie.
