    Hi, Thank you for this article. I am trying to determine If I am able to afford paying back a loan. However I do not have any business or personal debt, so I am not sure if the above mathematical equations pertain to my business or me. Is there another equation to determine if I am able to afford a loan that does not require debt?

    Thank you!

      Hi Stacey,

      Thanks for reaching out! The mathematical equations would still pertain to your business. Odds are, with no business or personal debt, you are in a good position to take on a loan, so long as you generate enough income to cover the payments. To see if you can afford the monthly payments, go to the section, “How To Calculate The Debt-To-Income Ratio.” Take the mortgage example, and instead of using data from a potential mortgage, put in your own data on the loan amount you want. This way, you’ll be able to see if you can afford the payments on a loan of that size or not.

      Let us know if you have any other questions and best of luck with the loan application process!
