3 Financial Resources for Small Businesses

Check City has convenient financial products and services for freelancers, self-employed entrepreneurs, and new businesses that are just starting out.

Small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and contractors are an important demographic within our economy. Running your own business can be challenging, especially as a small business when many business loans and financial services are designed for larger corporations. 

That's why Check City is here to help non-incorporated small businesses and freelancers get the small loan funding they need to run their businesses and side hustles. 

Along with short-term loans, Check City also offers other financial services and tools for small business owners like tax preparation services and business check cashing.

Short-Term Loans for Small Businesses

When you're running a small business you need your budget to run smoothly. Entrepreneurs run into problems like needing money for supplies, for delivery costs, to pay contractors, or to set up the workspace you need to do your job. 

Another problem that can arise as a contracted worker or freelancer is when clients aren't punctual about their payments. You've set your rates and done the work but the ones who hired you are taking their time mailing your check. What can you do when clients are being slow about making payments but you need those funds on time in order to keep working? 

For all this and more, small business entrepreneurs can come use a cash advance loan at Check City and get the funding they need asap. 

Step 1: Fill out the cash advance loan application.

Step 2: Check City will review the application.

Step 3: If approved, Check City will help you set up your loan payment and hand over the money you need.
