What is an inventory loan?

Having the resources to keep the right amount of inventory on hand is crucial to keeping your business going. Often you will need additional working capital during slow months or to ramp up inventory for a peak season. Inventory loans, or inventory financing, are designed to provide small business owners the working capital to purchase additional inventory needed to succeed.

Inventory lines of credit can help your small business by delivering funding up front to ensure you have sufficient working capital to buy in bulk, prepare for a peak season or take advantage of favorable pricing.

Is an inventory loan right for my business?

Inventory loans are designed primarily for existing businesses in retail or product-oriented sectors. These businesses can look to this type of small business loan to get the additional stock needed to prepare for a busy season when you know you will be able to pay off your loan quickly once the products are sold.

An inventory loan is likely a good fit for your business if you need to keep a much larger inventory on hand in warehouses and larger storage facilities. Larger wholesale retailers without a lot of cash on hand to replenish their supply may have the next few months of orders in a warehouse, but they do not have additional inventory to fulfill upcoming future orders.
