More Information on This SBA Loan

The borrower borrowed this money for an existing business. According to the loan information, this was not a franchise loan. At the time of the loan, the company had 23 employees. The loan application did not indicate that the company promised to use the funding to increase staffing levels or retain any existing employees.

Next Steps for Getting an SBA Loan

Although it's called an SBA loan, you apply for an SBA loan with a local or national bank, not with the SBA. The bank processes the loan and gives you the money, and the SBA simply guarantees a portion of the loan.

SBA loan guarantees are not loans per se. The SBA simply guarantees the loan, but banks and other lending institutions grant you the loan and give you the money. So, just as this company walked into Gulf Coast Bank and applied for an SBA loan, you have to do the same thing. You need to demonstrate business strength and potential, but the sooner you start, the faster you'll get the money if you qualify!
