Summarize this article for a 10 year old


A business plan is a formal written document containing the goals of a business, the methods for attaining those goals, and the time-frame for the achievement of the goals. It also describes the nature of the business, background information on the organization, the organization's financial projections, and the strategies it intends to implement to achieve the stated targets. In its entirety, this document serves as a road-map (a plan) that provides direction to the business.[1][2]

Written business plans are often required to obtain a bank loan or other kind of financing. Templates [3] and guides, such as the ones offered in the United States by the Small Business Administration[4] can be used to facilitate producing a business plan.
