SBA (7)a Loans

Speak with a lender

What to look for in your SBA lender

Is an SBA loan right for your business? SBA 7(a) loans generally offer lower interest rates, more flexibility with equity and collateral requirements, longer repayment terms, and fewer financial covenants (conditions) than conventional loans.

But not all SBA lenders are alike! If you’re looking for an SBA loan in order to acquire a business, expand your business, purchase equipment, or other reasons, it’s important to choose a lending partner with:

  • Combined expertise in SBA lending and your industry
  • The ability to offer small business loans in all 50 states
  • Knowledge of how to structure an SBA loan to meet your needs
  • Low down payments
