Why Alternate Financing? 🤷♀️
Here's the kicker: While CEBA loans are a lifeline, they're not a "one-size-fits-all" solution. To get the most out of the forgivable portion, you might need to think outside the CEBA box. Alternate financing could be your best friend here.
The Perks 🌟
1. Flexibility: Alternate financing can give you the wiggle room you need to meet all the CEBA eligibility criteria.
2. Safety Net: Let's say you fall short of the requirements for the forgivable portion of the CEBA loan. Having a backup plan, like a line of credit, can be a game-changer.
3. Peace of Mind: Knowing you've got all your bases covered can relieve a ton of stress. Trust us; you'll sleep better at night!
