What are SBA loans?

SBA loans are long-term, small business loans partially guaranteed by the government. The U.S. Small Business Administration is a federal agency committed to furthering the growth and development of small businesses and partners with lenders nationwide in their loan programs.

How it works

Unlike conventional term loans, an SBA Loan offers business owners the opportunity to take advantage of favorable terms as part of the SBA program, while removing some of the barriers to traditional financing options.

As a Preferred SBA Lender, our program offers a faster loan process with reduced paperwork for businesses that have been in operation for less than two years. We customize SBA loans based on the unique needs of the business owner. The funds may be used for vehicle purchases and refinances, equipment purchases, working capital, inventory and other general business needs.
