Stoutfiles gets the prize:
You don't get to hear the stories of the people who failed, but they highly outweigh the people who succeeded. If banks gave everyone a loan who asked, we'd have big problems. Oh wait, that already happened...
I would only add, get used to it. No one with any money is going to be taking many risks.
What would be the payback in higher risk? Typically, it's higher reward. Most leader can get more for their money, at less risk, that from lending to you.
It really does take money to make money.
