How to Apply for a Shop Loan?

Be it a loan for medical shop or any other retail enterprise, the application process is more or less the same.

The actual process of loan application is quick, simple and relatively hassle-free. At SMFG India Credit, we have an online platform that allows you to apply for a business loan anytime, anywhere as per your convenience. Alternatively, if you prefer a face to face interaction, you are welcome to visit us at your nearest branch. Our team will be happy to help you with any queries / issues.

Here are three easy steps that will help in getting the application process started.

1. Fill in Your Application: Make sure you fill all your personal, professional and financial details on the application form. This can be done either online or offline.

Generally, after you put in the request for a shop loan, a representative from SMFG India Credit will get in touch with you within a maximum of 2 working days. They will then help you understand the product; any loan offers you may be eligible for, applicable interest rates, repayment details and tenure of the loan.

2. Document Upload: Before you submit your documents by uploading them online or handing over hardcopies at your nearest branch office, you need to run a check with the help of a business loan EMI calculator to get an idea of the instalment that you are looking to commit as part of the repayment process to the lender. If you think that the amount is higher than what you can afford to repay, you can adjust the value of the principal amount or increase the tenure accordingly.

Once the document upload is complete, you will be given a preliminary decision on whether or not your application will be taken forward. If yes, we will take some time to verify the documents and the information provided in your application.
