What Is An SBA Loan?

An SBA Loan is a government backed loan that can be used to start or expand a business. The loan has certain requirements for eligibility, such as size standards, proving the ability to repay the loan and solid business purpose. The SBA works with specific lenders to offer their programs which eliminate the risk from the lender since they are backed by the government.

What Is a SBA 7A Loan?

A SBA 7(a) loan is the primary product from the SBA. It isn’t a loan directly from the SBA, rather, the SBA helps small business owners secure loans by guaranteeing a portion of the amount borrowed, capping interest rates, and limiting fees. Generally qualified business owners can use a 7(a) for any business purpose.
