I am in the middle of launching my new company. We are a direct sales company, selling all consumables (Candles, Bath and Body, Facial and Hair care, and Mineral Cosmetics). I have about 20K invested into the business at this point and am trying to find 5000-7500 in order to secure a few things that I do not yet have for the launch. I`m hoping to find a private person either willing to make a loan at a higher interest rate, or a silent investor. My personal credit is in shambles due to a divorce, so traditional means of lending, and Prosper are not options.
Based upon your type of business, the amount you seek and your situation - I`d say you need to find an individual who can (and will) support you with a personal loan. It`s probably going to be someone you know or someone they know, so I`d begin to tap into your expanded network.
If you want to discuss the specifics of your situation, send me a PM.
