Getting an SBA Loan For Your Business

Don't apply for a loan directly with the SBA. You need to 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 Pacific City 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!
