As far as SBA loans go, the SBA 7(a) is one of the most flexible. It allows businesses to use the funds in a number of ways and like other SBA loan types, has an interest rate that is capped by the federal government. Cadence Bank is an SBA lender and can help you get Small Business Administration-backed loans for your business.
$50,000 – $350,000
30- to 60-day SBA turnaround
For an SBA 7(a) loan, you’ve got BayFirst as an option for financing. CreditBench, which is part of BayFirst, offers these loans backed by the SBA. While they offer up to $350,000, they can still be an option for small business owners needing less than that amount that meets the SBA requirements.
No upfront or annual service fees for loans under $500,000
For a $5 million SBA-backed loan, look to Ready Capital. They offer loans up to the standard $5 million for business owners looking for cash and micro-loans under $25,000. They also have slightly lower credit requirements than the other lenders listed, starting at 640 and will fund franchise startups.
