SBA Lending

We are a market leader in all types of SBA loans.

Standard 7(a) Loan Guaranty program

FUNCTION: Serves as the SBA’s primary business loan program to help qualified small businesses obtain financing when they might not be eligible for business loans through normal lending channels. It is also the agency’s most flexible business loan program, since financing under this program can be guaranteed for a variety of general business purposes.

Loan proceeds can be used for most sound business purposes including working capital, machinery and equipment, furniture and fixtures, land and building (including purchase, renovation and new construction), leasehold improvements and debt refinancing (under special conditions). Loan maturity is up to 10 years for working capital and generally up to 25 years for fixed assets.

Certified Development Company (CDC), a 504 loan program

FUNCTION: Provides long-term, fixed-rate financing to small businesses to acquire real estate or machinery or equipment for expansion or modernization. Typically a 504 project includes a loan secured from a private-sector lender with a senior lien, a loan secured from a CDC (funded by a 100 percent SBA-guaranteed debenture) with a junior lien covering up to 40 percent of the total cost and a contribution of at least 10 percent equity from the borrower.

SBA Express Loan Program

FUNCTION: Serves as a division of the standard 7(a) program. Provides loans up to $350,000 for term loans and also for Lines of Credit. The terms and use of proceeds are the same as Standard 7(a) loans. In providing a lower guarantee on the loan, SBA provides a faster turnaround time and streamlined process.
