SBA LOAN

While partially guaranteed by the government, SBA loans help business get access to working capital while securing a low interest and long repayment term.

What is a SBA Loan?

A Small Business Administration Loan (“SBA Loan”) is a small business loan program administered by the Small Business Administration and is partially guaranteed by the government. This program works with other financial institutions to help give small businesses access to working capital that has longer terms and lower interest rates. Most businesses seeking working capital to purchase inventory, operate or expand a business can benefit from a SBA Loan.

Is a SBA Loan ideal for my business?

Many companies have business needs such as expanding in technology or location, payroll needs, new marketing endeavors, which require access to working capital that have longer terms and lower interest rates. SBA Loan amounts typically range from $500 to $5.5 million dollars upon approval. Due to the fact that an SBA Loan is partially guaranteed by the government, it helps reduce the lender’s risks, which allows for the lower rates and longer terms.
