I need an urgent international student loan!!!

I'm going to summarize my future academic path, so you can understand what are my goals.
I’m looking for a Psychology (BA/BS) program as an international student and an urgent loan is needed! I’m not going to stay in US holding a student visa, I'm intending to build my life there and start some businesses, so I will request a green card – have no idea if that matters to be more eligible and, consequently, to be accepted in those loan programs.

I want to enroll in a New York City or Los Angeles college, get the underdegree and then apply for medical school. There's no way I could apply for combined programs (BS/MD) because they will request my high school grades, which are not the best (in the GPA scale I have 2.9). My plan is to achieve excellent grades in the Psychology (BA/BS) so I can use them for the med school application.
Thereby, I don't fit in those kind of medical loans and scholarships which can be taken when students decide to pursue a combined program right after high school graduation. Unfortunately, that's not an option.

To sum up, I need an international student loan to cover college and living expenses. The problem is that I don't have a co-signer (US citizen or non-permanent resident citizen).
What are the possibilities of getting a loan? Do I have any chances?

If I have a serious conversation with the US bank institutions and talk about the loan I will request to buy a business (with the current profits and business financial assessment as a guarantee), will be that enough to ensure my credibility and, consequently, get the college loan making an agreement? In this case, I'd have net profit sooner or later and be able to repay.

Thanks in advance for any help! :)
Regards from Portugal!
