Great, But How Can I Get an SBA Loan for My Business?
The Small Business Administration (SBA) is a federal government agency that has many different programs to help small business owners. The SBA Microloan Program, for example, provides very small loans to start-up, newly established, or growing small business concerns. The SBA also has special programs for women and minorities. However, the most popular SBA program is their loan guarantee program for small businesses.
Many small business owners never get a business loan because they never bother to apply for a business loan. If you take the initiative, you may get a loan, just like this company did when it applied for and received this $130,000 loan. Remember, if it to be, it is up to me!
