A Bank Term loan from a bank in the FinTech Capital Management network can be used in a variety of ways to build your business and save money. The financial professionals at FinTech Capital Management are available to answer any questions you may have regarding acceptable uses of loan proceeds. The following are popular ways our customers use funds.
Working capital is used to cover a company's short-term expenses like inventory, equipment, marketing, payroll, hiring, and payments on short-term debt.
The formula to calculate working capital is:
Deduct current liabilities (primarily short term loans due within a year and accounts payable) from current assets (cash on-hand and things that can be easily converted into cash, like inventory and accounts receivable).
If your current assets don’t exceed your current liabilities, a bank term loan can get you back on track to help meet ﬁnancial obligations and cover day-to-day business expenses.
Many entrepreneurs rely on expensive debt when launching or in the early stages of their business. If those debt obligations are cutting into cash flow, refinancing can help you save big. For example, a marketing consulting company in San Francisco was making excessive monthly loan payments. The owner took out a $100,000 Bank Term loan with better terms and lower rates from a bank in the FinTech Capital Management network. He was able to refinance three high cost loans, saving the business approximately $7,000 monthly.
A bank term loan can cover costs related to hiring like recruitment, training, salary, and beneﬁts. An automotive business in North Carolina needed additional workers to keep up with service demand. The business owner allocated $15,000 from a bank term loan to hire and train 2 new technicians. With the additional staffing, he’ll be able to take on more jobs, increasing revenue.
Business equipment includes tangible property (other than land or buildings) used for operations. Examples include computers, machines, tools, and vehicles. A frozen food wholesaler allocated $60,000 from a Bank Term loan to replace outdated refrigerated equipment. The business now has reliable cold storage to handle current and future inventory.
A bank term loan can finance marketing efforts to build your brand, attract customers, and increase sales. Consider a Bank Term loan from a bank in the FinTech Capital Management network to cover things like advertising, trade show costs, promotional materials, and more.

If you need to increase existing inventory or expand your product line, funds from a bank term loan can cover the costs. The owner of a cafe in California is using loan proceeds to purchase additional coffee and tea products. They’ll save big by buying goods in bulk.
If you need funds for remodeling, bathroom updates, or other space improvements, consider a Bank Term loan from a bank in the FinTech Capital Management network.

The projected additional revenue per day due to the larger space is $1,000- $1,500 per day.
