Next Steps for Getting an SBA Loan

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.

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!
