When independent pharmacy owners require additional working capital for their businesses, they will likely visit their banker to discuss their financing options. As with any other business owner looking to borrow money, banks will need to assess their current creditworthiness including specific data about the pharmacy. This data will include their financial records, both personal and business. It will be scrutinized and their FICO must also be high to qualify for funding. If the owner has had issues with late payments to suppliers, for example, their application may be rejected.
Sometimes business owners are not satisfied with the options available to them when they are seeking pharmacy business loans at one bank. They may be looking for additional working capital purchase inventory from a new supplier, to renovate their existing location, expand to another, change signage and even upgrade their POS terminals. Financing to cover all these contingencies may not be readily available to them under one pharmacy business loan so they may try again at another traditional financing company. The process may have only just begun.
