The total funds that we anticipate that we will need to get A Taste of Tuscany going is $452k. Of this almost 60% or about $266k will come in the form of contribution from owners Jack and Carmen. The remaining 40% we will be raising in the form of a term loan in the amount of $186k from a bank. We intendto secure this loan in either direct loan from the bank itself, or through a Small Business Administartion ( SBA ) loan through a bank where the bank is guaranteed by the SBA that they will be paid back in the event we were to default on the loan.
We understand that the personal assets of both Jack and Carmen will probably have to be put up as collateral for the SBA loan and that is ok with both theowners whose personal financial statements show that they have plent of assets to provide for as collateral including ample equity in both their primaryresidences.
In the event this loan is not able to come through for us, the owners plan to contribute the remaining $186 from their own savings in the form on additionalequity investments into the business.
