I am wanting to purchase 50% ownership in an existing business. I currently have good credit, zero collateral, and have been working in the business for roughly 5 years. The purchase price is $150,000. I am trying to find information on how I can obtain that amount of money. I first asked about SBA loans but was told that in this case I could only qualify for one of the loans if I was purchasing 100% of the business. I understand I can ask friends or family...but I'm trying to gather all my options before doing so. Sorry in advance if I am asking some very basic questions. I am really just looking for some direction. Thanks!
