SBA Loans Financing Small Business
Helps People and America Grow

Discover how SBA business loan financing programs for small businesses can help acquire bank funding. Guarantee programs include including 7(a), 504 and disaster assistance. Whether you're starting a business or expanding one, sufficient SBA loan financing and ready capital is an essential element. While poor management is noted most often as the reason small businesses fail, inadequate or ill-timed funding is a close second.

Though the SBA isn't financing loans directly to help you start or expand a business, they work with banks and lenders to guarantee a percentage of the loan so that the lender has less risk. This makes funding attractive to lenders and borrowers alike.

It is not enough to simply have sufficient capital. Industry experience, knowledge and planning are necessary to manage the small business successfully. These qualities ensure that entrepreneurs avoid common mistakes like securing the wrong type of funding, miscalculating the amount required, or underestimating the cost of borrowing capital.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) was created in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government to aid in financing business loans, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns, to preserve free enterprise and to build, maintain and strengthen the overall economic strength of our nation. We know that small business is critical to our nation's economic development and strength, and to helping the United States compete in today's global economy. Although SBA has grown and evolved in the years since it was established in 1953, the bottom line mission remains the same. The organization helps Americans start, build and expand small businesses. Through an extensive network of field offices and partnerships with public and private organizations, it delivers its services to people throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam.
