Line of Credit or Personal Loan: How to Choose – NerdWallet
Lines of credit, on the other hand, are typically used for recurring expenses, such as restocking inventory and paying employees. Business owners can pull money from the line of credit theyve been issued whenever they need to. Whoever issues the line of credit, be it a bank or a credit union, limits how much money an individual can borrow each month. Repaying loans vs. lines of credit Before being extended a loan , a small-business owner works with the lender to draw up a repayment schedule. This will determine the length of the loan, its interest rate and the monthly amount that the small-business owner has to pay the lender. Unlike a line of credit, a loan will need to be repaid starting immediately, regardless of whether any funds have been used. In a line of credit , you only make payments on the amount of money youve used, and youre typically given a month to repay at least a portion of what you borrowed. Although not every line of credit is the same, most typically ask for a minimum payment of 1% or 2% of the total amount you borrowed.
