Simple Alliance, Kenya Limited



If your small business is to successfully stand on its feet, it needs to have access to financing. Debt financing is a major method of financing your small business. Usually, such financing is available in the form of business loans. 


So as to procure a business loan, you need to submit your application to various lender entities such as:

  • Commercial banks
  • Credit unions
  • Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies (SACCOs)
  • Other relevant financiers

Loan Application Form

After you register your desire to procure a loan with a lending firm, your chosen financial institution asks you to fill in a loan application form. This form is usually divided into several sections each of which contains different aspects about yourself as well as your business.   


In the loan application form, you will be required to provide details about issues such as:

  • Your reason for seeking the loan
  • The amount of money that you need

Reason for Pursuing Loan

The information you provide in this section pertain to your motivation for asking for the loan. You specify the capital or non-capital investments that you need to make. You need to carefully consider your real need for seeking a loan. 

The Cash Amount Needed

Based on your reason for the loan, you define the loan amount that you are seeking in this section.   If your planned investment will be for non-costly items, your stated loan amount would be low. On the other hand, if you intend to undertake a major asset acquisition, your loan amount will be high.  Your careful thought is required so as to clearly determine your needed monies.    

Debt Financing Advantages

Debt financing offers you a number of merits, including:

  • Tax rebates
  • Safeguarded business ownership

Tax Discounts

Mostly, the interest payment and the principal on your business loan are treated as business expenses. This expense item is subtracted from your business income taxes.  

Maintained Ownership

So long as you make your instalment payments on time, you have complete control over your business. Your financier has no control over you. This means that you can operate your business as you wish without external interference.
