Qualifying

When getting an SBA loan be prepared to give a pint of blood with it. This is your standard government red tape loan. There are standard size requirements, financial standing, and you must be in a for-profit industry. The borrower has to meet the SBA’s credit requirements and cannot be able to access other financing options that offer reasonable terms.

What is an SBA Loan?

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is a federal agency committed to supporting the growth and development of small businesses. The SBA does not personally provide the loans, however, they establish the guidelines for them and then guarantee a percentage of the loan, (in case of default) which minimizes the risk for their lending partners.

SBA 7a: can be used as a business acquisition, refinance, start-funds, equipment, buyout of a partner, as well as real estate.

SBA 504: is a purchase or construction loan only.

SBA Express: offers working capital and equipment. These can be pre-approved in less than 2 days.

What Types of Businesses Is It Good For?

Lendio offers several types of SBA loans for businesses in almost any for-profit industry. Loan amounts range from $35,000 – $5mm and are available for a wide variety of business purposes.

What are the Minimum Requirements?

The borrower has tried and cannot access capital elsewhere under reasonable terms. Generally, the borrower must have good credit, an accurate business plan, up-to-date financial projections, and not fall under any restricted business industries.

How Much Will an SBA Loan Cost?
