If you don't have a business plan and 10-15% of the start up cost, forget it. Got lower than a 650 credit score? forget it. My suggestion, find a minimum wage job like the rest of us. You aren't more special than me. I have good credit (680). I have a business plan. I have 10% of the upfront costs. I've been to SBA, banks, credit unions, etc. Nothing. That's the way life is.
