Review all three financial statements for the past five years and perform a financial analysis.  Determine what assets can be used as collateral, how much cash flow there is, and what the trends of the business are.  Then look at metrics such as debt to capital, debt to EBITDA, and interest coverage.  If all of these metrics are within the bank’s parameters, then it may be possible to lend the money, but the decision will depend on qualitative factors as well.
