Are you an entrepreneurial type?

In all circumstances you are dealing with start-up costs.
These costs depend on the type of business you plan to start. A lot of starting business owners are not in the position to decide their own costs and take out on a loan.

adFidem will put work out some essentials in an understandable manner for you.

Form a business plan

Before you can start your business you need to form your own business plan.
This might be difficult, time consuming, or even meaningless to you. However it is of critical essence for the start of your business.
The sum of your loan might even depend on it. The worse your business plan is, the bigger the chance is that your loan will be denied.

We highly recommend to put you time, effort and energy into this business plan. Ask people around you to help you, and to think with you. A well-considered business plan is the basis for your company, and eventually for you dream!
