A recent report showed that Arizona had the third-highest fastest-growing economy in the U.S. Since the recession, Arizona’s economic growth has been partly thanks to industries like financial and business services, health care and manufacturing — all industries that tend to be recession-resistant.[1] In addition, Arizona’s economic success and strong outlook is partly due to a growing self-employment rate of 10.3 percent.[2]

As California looks more to Arizona and the self-employed and small-business economy grows, more and more business owners are in need of self-employed financing but are often turned away because they don’t perfectly fit the desired description of the limited lender. For many banks, a client must perfectly check specific boxes in order to qualify for one of the few loan programs they offer. Today, this way of qualifying someone for a loan is outdated and doesn’t really make sense in this economy.

Business Bank Statement Loans: Phoenix, Arizona

For example, Simon has owned and operated a specialized chemical business for 16 years in Phoenix, Arizona. He wanted a loan to pay off a judgment that had been lingering for many years. Unfortunately, during some hardships, he had acquired some credit card debt that was limiting his ability to get approved with a traditional, full documentation loan, as well as a less than perfect credit score.   

Simon came to Griffin Funding, where we were able to use 24 months of his business bank statements to qualify him for a loan that included his judgment payoff. Because he paid off within the given time frame, he was able to get a $10,000 deduction from the payoff amount. He was also able to get some additional cash out to pay off credit card debt, lowering his debt and improving his overall credit.
