Whether you’re a startup or an established business, you need to purchase equipment and tools to meet your business needs. Be it from heavy machinery, vehicles, office equipment, computers, to technology solutions — these equipment are essential to your day-to-day operations and can determine the path of your success.


However, as a business owner, you also understand that buying these kinds of equipment can be costly, and can affect your cash reserves or working capital. So what should you do when you’re stuck between preserving your working capital and investing in your business?


This is where a short-term loan comes in as your lifeline. Short-term loans can give you the necessary fund to procure your desired equipment without affecting your working capital.

1. Manage your cash flow efficiently

 You no longer need to save up to cover the expenses of your equipment’s upgrade or replacement. With short-term loans, you will quickly obtain the fund you need for your purchase, which would not affect your business's ongoing operational expenses like payroll, rent, and other recurring costs.


2. Flexible terms

Short-term loans allow you to spread out your payment over a longer time than procuring your equipment in a one-time purchase. This gives you more leeway to pay your loan in confidence.


Having updated equipment and tools will not only give you a competitive advantage, but it will also boost your business operations.


3. Improves your credit

If you make payments on-time, this will positively impact your credit score as a business. Proving yourself as a good payer gives the lender confidence to lend you additional funds in the future.
