What is a Business Loan and what can I use it for?
A Business Loan is a loan usually meant for business purposes.
These types of loans are unsecured, meaning that it is not necessary
to have any form of collateral such as property to be approved.
There are no specific limitations on how a business loan can be used.
Once you've been funded, you are free to use the funds as you desire.
Investors will want you to say you'll use it on your current business
at your merchant interview, however.
What is Debt Consolidation (DC)?
If you are carrying a large amount of debt from previous loans, a DC
loan can be used to consolidate your payments into one easy
payment with lower interest rate. Doing so can save you lot of money.

What is a Short-Term Loan and what can I use it for?
A short-term loan is a quick, easy and convenient loan that can be used
to address short term and immediate financial needs. Short-term loans are
commonly used for financial emergencies, like home or auto repairs,
unexpected medical bills, or in times where you are falling a bit short
on your budget before your next incoming money.
Can I be approved for a loan with bad credit?
At A1 Financial USA, we believe that everyone deserves access to credit.
We work with lenders that provide loans for those with excellent credit,
average credit or poor credit. Even if you are in the process of rebuilding
your credit, you can still qualify for a loan with us!.
We funded a 386 FICO $22,000 in July 2019.
How do I know if I’ve been approved for a loan?
Once you submit your loan application, our lending machine goes
to work. We'll match you with a lender based on the information
you've provided. If a match is found, you will be notified.
You will then be directed for instructions on how to finalize your loan.
If we are unable to match your application with a lender,
we will direct you to additional options to help address your financial needs.
What are the rates and terms of A1 loans?
The exact terms of your loan (including interest rates, repayment periods
and payment information) will be presented to you once we determine
them. Each borrower is different, has different file criteria, such as personal
information, including income, industry, credit history and even the state
that you reside in.
I've been approved for a loan - when will I receive my funds?
Once we have matched your request with a lender, A1 will direct you to
instructions on how to finalize your loan. Once you have signed for your
loan your funds are released. Funds are typically received in your
bank account by the next business day.
How much/How little can I borrow?
At 1, customers can apply for a loan between $1,000 and $500,000,000.
The amount you are actually approved for is dependent on a number
of factors, including your income, credit history, state of residence and
the lender that you are matched with. Not everyone is eligible for
$500,000,000. In the event that you are not approved for your requested
loan amount, you are still eligible to be approved for a lower amount.
Can I only apply during business hours?
A1 accepts loan applications online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our network of lenders are open during business hours, but we are
working weekends around the clock to put you in first position on
Monday morning. Once you are approved, you will receive instructions
on how to finalize your loan with your lender.
How long do I have to repay my loan?
At A1 our lending network includes both installment and short-term loan
lenders to serve your financial needs. The amount of time you are given
to repay your loan depends on the type of loan and lender.
Installment loans are paid back over multiple payments, usually between
6 to 120 months. Short-term loans are usually paid back in 2 to 12 months.
Is it possible to get an extension on my loan?
Most lenders offer loan extensions & renewals and alternative repayment
options in special circumstances. We recommend that you contact your
lender directly to discuss the options available to you.
Which states/countries do you serve?
A1 serves all 49 states, sorry no CA at this time.
We also serve Canada, Puerto Rico, & Guam.

-Can I get a loan if have equity, but I have no docs, no income,
and a high debt ratio? You can. We know HARD MONEY lenders. Although
expensive, we can help you get back on your feet if you have equity. Apply
--Is it dangerous to take Hard Money?
A hard money lender can be your best friend, and help you survive, or your
worst enemy, but thankfully, it all depends on YOU--paying back the loan.
Downside : If you default on your hard money loan, the HM lender can
foreclose on your home and property.
The loans are usually expensive, as much as 10-15%.
Upside: You can get survival money, without tax forms, proof of income, or
really much else. It's great to have that money to pay
off higher interest credit cards, deduct your debt from taxes,
and buying yourself time by paying your mortgage payment with the funds,
so you can go back to school, start a business, pay medical bills, pay for a
wedding, take a much needed vacation, or a combination of the above.
--"Will I ever have to pay an advance fee?"
NEVER! Any one who does is scamming you, run away from them to us.
--"Will applying negatively impact my credit score?"
It's our mission to minimally impact your credit score.
Many of our lenders only view your Equifax score, so you do not have that
normal "ding" of other creditors. When a "full pull" must be done, it only
impacts 5 points. Most of our lenders, (but not all, to be clear,) report the
loan payback to the credit bureaus, so you make up considerably more than
5 points over the life of the loan.
Remember inquiries make up only 5% of your FICO score.
--"Will you call me back if I call and leave a message?
It's our mission and promise to offer the best customer service in the USA, so
yes, of course. We are very caring and prompt with our communication!
I called, but the machine answered, so I hung up.
What should I have done?"
This happens when we are extremely busy and our operators can not take
any more calls. Please leave a message at the beep, with your name, time
you called, phone number and reason for the call, and we promise to call
you as soon as humanly possible.
Please be sure to call without noise in the background, or while eating,
chewing gum or tobacco, or immediately after dental work (believe it or not,
some people call while doing these!) and please speak slowly, loudly, and
We must understand your message to help you best!
--How trustworthy is A1 Financial USA?
First off, just so you know, we have zero complaints!
(and please search us if you like, we're on Trustpilot.com
Search A1 Financial USA .
We're not selling you anything, we're trying to get you
financial assistance, usually money.
Fast-Easily, and Affordably....and we're all trained in
customer service and ethics, so no problems here!
As every member of our organization is mandated to take a
financial ethics course, provided by the Quality Human Corp.,
we have learned some things that changed the way we look at
the world, and companies like the BBB.
Ask yourself this: Is it ethical to force a business
to pay over $700/year to a powerful company like the BBB
just so they will call you "BBB Accredited"?...and if you don't pay,
and someone searches you, they post
"THIS IS NOT AN ACCREDITED BUSINESS" .
It seems a bit like unethical extortion, to a professionally ethics-trained
person. Pretend, if you will, your church did not
pay the $700, and you searched them.
Is it fair to passively "cast a dark shadow"
on them by posting
"THIS IS NOT AN ACCREDITED BUSINESS"?
Of course not. What they should post is:
" This business did not pay us a fee to become accredited, but they are in
good standing otherwise."
That is what an ethical, honest, public serving company would do,
right?..Think about it....
Also, the BBB is silently saying "You can buy trust" by giving an
"ACCREDITED" tag to anyone that pays.
A terrorist could open a pipe bomb shop and be "accredited" ...
thanks to the BBB's policies.
However, we do understand the idea of building public trust, so we chose the
Consumer Review Bureau instead,
they only charge $399/ year and refuse to bash a company for not paying
They train each and every CEO, and staff member of an organization,who all
must past a rigorous customer service and ethics test before becoming
--"I filed for bankruptcy under 18 months ago.

most any loan, even when bankruptcy is involved. It must have been
discharged by 1 day, however you can not be in filing
or "paying off" status.

--Do you offer other loans besides Business Loans?
Not any longer.
--Are you affiliated with A One Financial (an auto lender)?
Not at all...but we do get their calls all day long.
--We heard A1 employees are addicted to coffee.
Is that true?
Because we work around the clock for our customers, yes,
it's 100% true...except for Kelly, our graveyard shift manager.
She prefers milk, oddly enough.
--"My refi application asks for my business net worth.
How do I calculate that?"
Review your company's balance sheet and tally the assets.
Assets are items of value, such as cash, investments, accounts receivable, "sell
able" equipment by market value,
(please list each of these 5 for us).
Estimate the value of the company’s intangible assets.
Intangible assets include intellectual property and patents.
Total the business assets. (Add 1+2)
Tally the business’s liabilities.
Liabilities are debts and other obligations.
Liabilities include accounts payable,business vehicles, and salaries.
(that's weekly salaries paid out, btw...)
Factor in potential liabilities, such as contingent liabilities.
Contingent liabilities are not current obligations but may
become a liability in the future. Probable contingencies with
amounts that can be estimated must be recorded on the balance sheet.
You may also find amounts in the footnotes.
(Try to keep this at zero unless you know something particular, such as a leaking
roof, termite damage, etc)
Total the business liabilities. (add 4+5)
Calculate net worth by subtracting the total liabilities from the total assets.
Always consult your attorney or financial
advisor before making decisions.
These are proper answers for 99% of the
public,but not 100%.
