Small Business Administration “SBA” Loans

small business loan applicationThe Small Business Administration (SBA) is a federal government organization that is devoted to helping small businesses establish themselves and succeed. Their loan program is one of the most common ways that new companies receive funding, and they do so by guaranteeing those loans to banks. Though it can still be somewhat difficult to qualify for SBA loans, The Credit Express can still help you out.

There are three main kinds of SBA loans we help connect clients with.

Microloans – These loans are the smallest form of business loans you can get, and usually range from $1,000 to $15,000. The interest on these ranges from 8 to 13 percent, and payment terms for these SBA loans max out at 6 years. This form of loan has no fees.

504 Loans – These SBA loans are known as major success starters for both businesses and the community at large. 504 loans are for real estate and equipment only. The maximum loan amount, also known as an SBA debenture, is $5 million. Fees can run up to 3% of the debenture amount, and interest rates can be slightly higher. You will have to create at least one job that earns $65,000 through the 504 loan. You can use 504 loans to refinance your business, too.

7(a) Loans – These loans are the most popular form of SBA loan available. Rates are very low, and you have a lot of freedom with what you can use this form of SBA loan for. Payment terms can be up to 25 years for real estate, and there may be a guarantee fee associated with them.
