Facing Loan Payment Delinquency? SEWN can Help you Navigate the Storm with these Steps
Falling behind on loan payments can feel like a sinking ship, but businesses facing this challenge don't have to resign themselves to rough waters. With proactive action and clear communication, companies can stabilize their situation and regain control of their finances. Here are some crucial steps to take:
1. Assess the Situation:
Identify the cause: Is it a temporary cash flow hiccup, an industry downturn, or a structural problem within the business? Understanding the root cause helps tailor effective solutions.
Quantify the shortfall: How much is delinquent and over what period? This informs the urgency and potential severity of the situation.
2. Communicate with your Lender:
Don't wait for them to contact you: Open and honest communication is key. Explain the reasons for the delay and proactively propose solutions. SEWN can help you with those difficult conversations.
Explore alternatives: Discuss options like payment deferrals, loan restructuring, or renegotiating terms. Lenders are often willing to work with borrowers who demonstrate transparency and a commitment to resolving the issue.
3. Tighten the Ship:
