Is financing even possible with bankruptcy in your history???

A medical reason left me in chapter 7. 6 years later, I'm re-established. Credit score over 700 and $50,000 in pocket but the banks won't touch me. I do not want to wait another 4 years to get up and running again when the only thing holding me back is from 6 years ago. Can anyone recommend a bank that will consider a business loan with a red flag like this in my credit history?

Hello, I have two lenders that I work with that could help you. I also have a few sellers that will offer partial financing in addition to what the banks will lend you.
