How much will this loan cost me?
Currency offers loans up to $500,000 for terms between two and six years. But while it does have 0% financing programs available to some borrowers, your APR will likely range from 7% to 20% — although we weren’t able to get exact rates when we called. If you use Currency through a dealership, your APR may be higher or lower.

How it works
The underwriting process depends on your business’s finances and the type of equipment needed. If you meet its minimum requirements, you may be approved — but your rates will likely be above 20%. Established businesses with strong revenue and an owner with excellent personal credit could be able to borrow more at a lower rate.
But Currency isn’t necessarily a direct lender, which makes the financing process more difficult. Because you can work through a seller or dealership and finance through Currency, you may need to meet entirely different requirements — and end up with different rates and loan amounts. To clear up any confusion, we recommend reaching out to a Currency representative before getting started.

In addition to these requirements, your business must not have a net loss greater than 10% within the past 12 months.
