To get the capital you need, it helps to understand how credit decisions are made. The 5C’s of Credit are used when reviewing a loan application and setting a loan’s terms and conditions.  Understanding these key factors can help prepare you to meet with your loan officer. The packet will go into more depth about the 5C’s and what they can mean when making a lending decision.
