A well crafted plan will act as a blueprint to build, maintain or expand your business and also be used to present your company as a viable and sustainable business entity in the loan application process. Further, a carefully written plan clearly presents each component of a business, explains how various aspects of a business integrate and coordinate, and assists business owners with finding hidden business weaknesses and opportunities. Key sections of a business plan include: an executive summary, the business description, management, employees, operations and suppliers, customer and market analysis (marketing, competition, location), plan strategy (including a SWOT Analysis), loan request and financial statements (balance sheet, operating statement, personal finances, cash flow).
