An unsecured business line of credit can be difficult to get from a traditional lender without a personal guarantee; a promise to pay business debts without your own collateralized assets in the event of default. However, many alternative lenders, including online lenders, may not require one. If you don't want to risk your assets, shop round for a lender that provides what you need.
