Honeycomb Crowdfunded Small Business Relief Loan Program

Honeycomb Credit has created a Small Business Relief Loan Program for small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Program offers two loan options for eligible small businesses.

– Option 1: offers loans of $10,000- $50,000, with a 45-day payment-free period, 3.75% interest rate over the initial 6-month period, and 5% interest rate over a 3-year fully amortizing loan period (after the initial six months).

– Option 2: offers loans of $10,000-$25,000 with a 45-day payment-free period, 3.75% interest rate over the initial 6-month period, and 7.5% interest rate over a 3-year fully amortizing loan period (after the initial six months).

– If you do not qualify for either of these options (or require more than $50,000), you can fill out their application and see how they can help you out.

FundRocket

FundRocket is offering small businesses interestfree loans in the amount of $1,000, which may be used to cover any of the business’s expenses. Money will be made available immediately after sign-up, and typically will be deposited into your business bank account within 1 day. Repayment of the loan will vary depending on the business’s sales. If the business has no sales in a given week, it will not be required to pay anything for that week. If the business does make sales during a given week, FundRocket will automatically begin withdrawing 10% of the sales (up to $100) starting two weeks after the initial $1,000 is deposited into your business bank account, until the loan is repaid in full.

Any U.S. business with a business bank account is eligible to apply.
