Citibank SBA Loan to Furniture Stores Company

Looking to get a Texas small business loan? Here's one Texas business loan that was approved by the SBA.

This small business needed an SBA business loan in Merkel, Texas back in 2000 and, after submitting their loan application, they were successful in getting an SBA loan from Citibank, operating out of Abilene, Texas. Here are the details on this Texas small business loan.

More Information on This SBA Loan

The borrower borrowed this money for an existing business. This loan was not for a franchise. At the time of the loan, the company had 6 employees. The SBA loan documents did not indicate that the SBA funding recipient planned to use the loan proceeds to hire new employees or retain any existing employees.

Getting an SBA Loan For Your Business

Don't forget. To get an SBA loan, you must 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 Citibank 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!
