Hi Antoine,

First of all, let's talk about the amount of money you say you need to get the training and equipment.  Where does that dollar figure come from?

Secondly, do you have a business plan?  Have you checked in your local - or your 'business universe' to see where your clients are going to come from?  

How are you going to reach those clients?  How are you positioning yourself so that they choose to work with you?  (I did a little research, and the medical billing field is a saturated one, so I'd be interested in knowing why you're choosing this one?)

If you'll answer these questions, it will help me help you figure out your financing questions.

Warmly,

Cheryl

More research is required. Expand your business proposals. Medicals may not be saturated elsewhere!
