B & I Consulting Group - Getting A Loan

With Start to Finish Expertise



We have developed direct working relationships with lenders seeking USDA B&I, SBA and Conventional loans. We save time and effort by quickly determining the one that can meet the particular needs of your loan request, at the best terms. The lenders we work with accelerate productivity getting quality loans matching their credit box. 




We will thoroughly analyze your financing request and particular situation to determine its viability and present financing options. We customize your presentation and your loan structure to be well-received in today's rapidly evolving financial marketplace. We also provide unique expertise to present your loan in such a way that it meets the separate needs of both the lender and the USDA who have separate loan and guarantee policies.




Many issues can arise and must be properly addressed during the course of a loan. We assist through all stages from pre-underwriting, loan submission, loan approval process, getting your loan commitment to read correctly and processing the loan through documentation, title and closing issues to funding. With a USDA B&I and SBA loan, this occurs for both the lender, USDA and CDC/SBA. We interact with the USDA (and or SBA/CDC) to get your loan qualified, and follow through to get your loan guarantee approved. Post-funding, we work with the USDA to make sure the lender obtains the guarantee, or debenture, to complete your loan.  We manage your loan structure as the loan evolves to keep it on track and ensure a solid finish. Or in some cases we assist you with multiple loan requests (combine SBA 7a or 504, Conventional and or Farm Service Agency loans) to meet your needs.  




USDA loan processing is different and unique which can make it a recipe for starts and stops and uncertain outcomes if not handled properly. To get consistent results for our clients we transformed a complicated process of coordinating two separate loan processes (and loan policies)into a streamlined start to finish process. Our loan system helps us to identify and address issues that can stall or derail your loan right up front, and keep all three parties: lender, borrower and USDA coordinated in every step. This enables us to show extraordinary results for our clients.




Our lending expertise, USDA program mastery and B&I loan packaging and processing system rapidly made us a leading source for USDA B&I financing. As a result we have a consistent track record of achieving success for our clients in a complicated loan product with a 90% submission to funding ratio. B&I Consulting Group is uniquely positioned to offer exceptional services to meet your rural financing needs.
