How does a line of credit work?

First, let’s define line of credit (LOC) loans. A business line of credit is a loan in the form of revolving capital. That means as you pay back your loan or line of credit, you can immediately borrow from it again. Another word for this is an open-end credit account.

Business lines of credit can be secured with collateral but are often unsecured. And with a 73% approval rate , an unsecured business line of credit has become one of the most popular alternative business lending options.

Typically, small businesses pay interest on the entire balance of a traditional business loan. With either an unsecured line of credit or a secured line of credit, there are no predetermined average loan payment terms. Similar to a credit card, you will be given a limit and only pay interest on the amount withdrawn from the line, instead of the entire limit. Unsecured business line of credit funds can be arranged by banks, credit unions, and other types of lenders. They’re extremely popular funding sources for many businesses in the United States.

Unsecured vs. Secured Line of Credit

There are two primary types of business lines of credit:

1. Unsecured : An unsecured business credit line does not require collateral . This means you won’t need to secure your borrowing against an asset. However, you may need to pay higher annual percentage rates as lenders are taking on more risk.

2. Secured : A secured business line of credit is collateralized with an asset, such as a commercial property or expensive machinery. A secured line of credit poses less risk to lenders, as they can seize your asset to pay any defaults.

If your business is not in a position to put up collateral, you may be looking for an unsecured line of credit.
