  Article Summary  
In the course of normal operations, it’s not unusual for CEOs or CFOs to determine that they need a cash infusion from outside the business. This cash can be obtained in one of two ways: by borrowing the money, or by selling an equity stake in the business to outside investors.

In this article, we look at debt as a business financing tool with discussions of defining the reason for the loan and the five main types of business loans provided by commercial banks: line of credit, term loan, commercial mortgage, leases and government loan programs such as 7(a), 504 and SBAExpress loans.

A business loan can be a valuable tool to help Los Angeles and Southern California CEOs and CFOs grow or expand their businesses or meet short-term cash flow needs. But care must be taken to make sure that the right loan is used for the right purposes. If you need help determining what is the best type of loan for your particular financing need, you may want to talk to an outsourced CFO services provider, who can offer specific guidance for your situation.
