Get your Business Line of Credit locally

Why Cambrian? Our purpose is to save, solve and simplify.

At Cambrian, our purpose is to save you time & money. That is our main goal in everything we do for our members, including helping you with your Business Line of Credit.

Save on interest with a flexible form of financing.

A line of credit has the flexibility of a credit card, with the interest rate of a loan. Your line of credit can help you manage your cash flow and day to day operating expenses.

Once set up, a business line of credit gives you flexibility - you have an authorized limit to draw from, so you can create your own loan when you need it, as per the terms of your Committment Letter. You don't need to apply for a loan every time you need funds - you decide when and how much of the authorized limit you use. And, you only pay interest on the amount you use.

Enjoy peace of mind, knowing that your Business Line of Credit is there when you need it.

The discussion paper will also list the conditions and precedents that must be met before Cambrian can fund the line of credit, the reporting requirements and any other relevant information.

Once the line of credit is approved, Cambrian will send a Committment Letter for your review and signature, which will outline your approved credit and the terms and conditions of your line of credit.

You receive your line of credit once you’ve met the pre-funding conditions

Upon meeting the pre-funding conditions, you have access to your Business Line of Credit and can use it, as per the draw down conditions outlined in the Committment Letter.
