What is a Commercial Loan?
Commercial and industrial lending, or C&I lending, is simply any loan granted to a borrower that is a business and not an individual. C&I loans provide funds for capital expenditures, working capital, and other business financing requirements.
What factors are considered when applying for a commercial loan?
When applying for a commercial loan, lenders consider several factors to assess the creditworthiness of the borrower and the viability of the business. These factors include the borrower's credit history, business financial statements, cash flow projections, collateral value, industry analysis, and the purpose of the loan. Lenders also evaluate the borrower's experience and management capabilities to determine their ability to repay the loan.

How does commercial lending differ from residential lending?
Commercial lending refers to loans provided to businesses or individuals for commercial purposes, such as acquiring commercial properties, financing business expansions, or purchasing equipment. Residential lending, on the other hand, focuses on loans for purchasing or refinancing residential properties. Commercial lending involves more complex underwriting processes, higher loan amounts, and different risk assessments based on the financial performance of the business or commercial property.
