What are the lenders looking for?

Total deposits from true business revenue in the current cycle.   Transfers, rebates and other credits that do not look like real business revenue are not counted.

5 or more on average per month is ideal, and more are better.

Expect the loan to be declined with a currently overdrawn account.    The most recent activity shows the current balance.  Make a deposit if overdrawn and then provide a current monthly activity statement.
