In order to successfully run your business, you need a business plan. In order to apply for a loan, you will need this business plan and some other documents. To get a rough idea of what your business plan should include, check out the short version of the plan you will need. When it's time to get serious about that loan, check out the detailed plan that you will need to submit. If you want more information on starting or running a business, we recommend the Small Business Administration Website "Starting a Business".
