As a manufacturer, you need access to capital to keep your business running smoothly. But should you get a term loan or line of credit? Understanding the key differences will help you determine the best financing option.
What is a Business Line of Credit?
A line of credit provides revolving access to capital up to a set limit. You only pay interest on the amount drawn. The balance fluctuates based on your needs.
Benefits for Manufacturers
- Flexibility - Draw funds as needed instead of getting a lump sum
- Lower risk - Pay interest only on what you use
- Ongoing access - Reuse the line as you pay down the balance
- Fast funding - Can be approved more quickly than loans
