Next Steps for Getting an SBA Loan

SBA loans typically are available at competitive interest rates and have no balloon payments or annual reviews.

There are SBA loan fees that may apply. SBA lenders must pay the SBA a guaranty fee of 1% to 3.5% of guaranteed amount. The SBA will also make the lender pay annual fees amounting to 0.25% of the loan's outstanding balance. The lender is allowed by law to pass these fees to the borrower.

Still, as most small businesses know, these fees are minimal compared to the potential of what capital can do for a business. So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with an SBA lending bank today!
