Lendio Adds 40 Banks, Offers Local Business Loans to 70% of the U.S.

Lendio now gives business owners access to local business loans in 35 states across the country

Lendio Adds 40 Banks, Offers Local Business Loans to 70% of the U.S.SALT LAKE CITY — Lendio has added more than 40 banks and credit unions in the last 30 days to its fast-growing lender network.

In addition to its national lenders, Lendio now has financial institutions in 35 states ready to provide small business loans across the country.

“Many lenders focus on local relationships with business owners. With these additions, business owners in these states will have a much better chance at getting the capital they need.” said Brad Hagen, vice president of lender partners.

Lendio, an online service that is solving the business loan crisis in America by matching business owners with viable business financing, currently has more than 3,000 possible loan options in its network.

“Our technology is instantly matching borrowers with the best fit from all these lenders,” said Brock Blake, Lendio CEO. “This is significantly increasing loan approval rates across the country.”

Blake says those approval rates are about five to seven times the national approval rate.

“Let’s face it,” Blake said, “It’s tough for most businesses to get a loan right now through traditional methods. That’s because lenders aren’t finding the right borrowers and vice versa. And many borrowers don’t know there are so many options available.”

Since Lendio’s technology was launched in March of this year, there have been more than $4 billion in business financing requested through its system. Along with traditional loans from banks and credit unions, Lendio also helps people find alternative business loans, such as peer-to-peer, AR and PO financing, equipment loans, and microloans.

“As we continue to bring on more lenders, we’re confident we’ll be able to help even more business owners increase their chances of getting approved for a small business loan,” Blake said. “In an even bigger picture, Lendio is proving to be a solution to drive more capital to Main Street businesses.”

    • Frank, the best thing you can do is sign up for a Lendio account (there’s a sign up button at the top right of the page) to find which loans you’ll have the best chance of qualifying for. And Lendio is completely free for business owners.

  5. How about given me a job!

  6. $4 bn requested with a 70% approval rate? You funded $2.8 bn in five months? Hmmmmm

    • 70% of the people who visit Lendio get matched to at least one lender. Once the match takes place the borrower has the option to pursue a loan with the matched lender or not. The 70% refers to matches, not necessarily funded loans.
