Benefit of using VC over business loan for small projects?

Morning! Hope you all had a good Christmas.

Is there is any benefit to using a VC over taking out a business loan for smaller projects (let's say $200k is needed)? Obviously you incur some risk with the business loan, but you get to keep your company. I'm wondering if VC's normally offer support and/or guidance to help grow your business, or if they're strictly buying a stake of your company and nothing more.
