Why is that important? So that you do not apply for a loan at a bank, at which you would not have chances anyway. As no bank is annoucing to whom they are not granting loans!

Tips on the providers
With Auxmoney, you can even finance bank-independently, because private and commercial investors invest in loans through Auxmoney (P2P-loans). If the subject investing in loans sounds interesting to you, then take a look at this page ► http://info.auxmoney.com/top-rendite.html.
Particularly decisive is the creditworthiness assessment based on your Schufa and information-score to get a loan approval at Auxmoney. A business-plan or a “promise” is not necessary.
A “history” of being a self-employed person is not necessary either, which is why even start-up loans are possible.
Loan for business start-ups possible
A German bank account is necessary for the loan payout, as well as for the direct debit of the monthly installments. If you do not have one yet, you can set up an account within 5 minutes at this provider.
Auxmoney-loan for self-employed persons:
My attention was drawn to the loan offer for self-employed persons through one of my Berlin friends, to whom I had recommended the loan comparison of Smava. He contacted me full of joy a short time later and told me that he was forwarded to Barclaycard through the loan comparison.
The application was easy and the payout really took place within only two days.
Fast loan payout
My subsequent research resulted in the fact that Barclaycard has granted loans to quite a lot of self-employed persons and has even handled later increases or reductions (special repayments) very well.
Barclaycard-loan for self-employed persons:
ING (until November 2018: ING-DiBa)
Special repayments work just as well at the ING. However, the ING grants loans only to chosen – almost superior – freelancers. The “commercial” self-employed person does not have any chances on getting a loan approval. This is a legit decision of the bank!

The ultimate advice
Okay, you have seen three wonderful providers, at which a loan application as a self-employed person is not doomed to failure from the very beginning (such as the DKB or other online banks with outstanding conditions for private customers) through the table and the additional details.
Which provider has the best offer for you?
But at which of the three providers will you get the best interest rate or, in total, the best offer? Are there perhaps other providers that we have overlooked?
Exactly this is the reason why I recommend, just like to my Berlin friend, to always make the loan application through the calculation tool provided by Smava ► https://www.smava.de/kreditanfrage/.
This has the following advantages for you:
- enter all data 1 × and receive several (unbinding) loan offers – You can choose!
- only banks are shown that would finance you due to your statements
- in the comparison, there are always current banks included that finance self-employed persons
- if desired, you receive a telephone consultation after entering the data
- help at the fast loan payout
Next possible step: data entry for loan comparison
