Payroll provider Paychex has partnered with Biz2Credit, an online credit resource for small businesses, to offer the Paychex Small Business Loan Resource Center, an online resource that gives business owners access to more than 1,200 lenders offering various loan options for businesses’ specific financing needs.

“Through our partnership with Biz2Credit and our new loan resource center, Paychex is underscoring its commitment to helping small businesses succeed by giving them access to the funds they need to start, grow and manage their business,” said Paychex senior director of risk management Frank Fiorille in a statement.

The Paychex Small Business Loan Resource Center gives small business owners access to a variety of business loans and other small business financing products, including U.S. Small Business Administration loans, micro-loans, commercial real estate loans and business lines of credit, among others.

“Although things have improved since the depths of the recession, it is by no means easy for small business owners to secure financing today,” said Biz2Credit CEO Rohit Arora.

With the new Paychex loan center, business owners can find the best loan options available to them by providing a few details about their business and filling out a single application that matches their criteria against more than 1,200 lenders. They then have the option of working with a Biz2Credit loan specialist to explore their options and select a loan. For more information, visit www.paychex.com/business-loans.
