Laying out a business plan is one of the many ways you can map out how your business will go–what industry will it belong to? Who is its target market? What are the goods or services that it will be providing? And so much more. Once you’ve carried that out, it’s down to laying out how you can get from point A to B. Does your business have the logistics to get you there? How about the resources? This is usually the first hurdle that most business startups run into. Some would resort to “bootstrapping” where one would gather up all of his finances together, be it from his credit cards, savings, or even home equity lines, for the purpose financing the startup. But if that is too risky for you, we have compiled 4 of the best loan agencies in East Singapore’s Paya Lebar to help your business get on its feet.
Note: This list is strictly not in order.

Lendingpot is a business-to-business service that offers financial loan assistance. But what makes them unique from the ones we have on our list is that they are the first digital business loan broker in Singapore. They links SMEs (small to medium-sized enterprises) with requests for a business loan to a variety of financial institutions… free of charge! They have a digital marketplace on business loans where both borrowers and lenders can gather. This eliminates the high rates and long approval times that you would usually encounter with traditional lenders since their platform aims to improve on the financing experience of SMEs. But beyond business loans, Lendingpot constantly finds different ways to increase the engagement of SMEs by providing them with information, different tips and strategies with regards to business loans.
If the digital approach of Lendingpot sounds like an efficient way for you to kickstart your venture, why not give them a call?

5. Minterest Money
If it sounds unfamiliar, Minterest Money is actually yesteryear’s QianNow. This loan agency uses their own algorithm on credit scoring to provide you with a financing cost, and they can lend you finances of up to 6 times of your monthly income! You might think that they might charge you with high interests, but you’ll be glad to know that Minterest Money agrees with your concern–you should not be overpaying for your loans. This is the motivation behind their unconventional but efficient approach to assess and provide you with the lowest rates possible; they don’t follow the standardized interest rates that most loan agencies adhere to. But instead, they determine your interest based on your education or working experience! And if you want to get an even lower interest rate, having a security and a guarantor (which by they way is not required) can definitely make it possible!
Minterest Money‘s views and approach towards financial interest definitely makes them a worthy starter for this list.
Suzy was very friendly and patient, the process was seamless and the amount was disbursed the same day after signing the documents.
The loan officer was professional and friendly, good value as well interest rates are lower than normal moneylenders.
