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.

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 Florida Community 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!
