ABOUT SBA LOANS
What Are SBA Loans?
SBA loans, or Small Business Administration Loans, are loans that are designed specifically for small businesses and have advantages that conventional loans don’t. These loans are guaranteed by the Small Business Association, which allows lenders, like Core Bank, to provide loans to small businesses without requiring the collateral a traditional commercial loan would require. SBA loans are often the best and sometimes only way for small businesses to acquire the financing they need to grow.
Types of SBA Loans
SBA 7(A) LOANS
This is the SBA’s primary loan program for both existing and startup businesses to obtain financing that they wouldn’t be able to acquire through traditional lending options. 7(a) loans are highly flexible, allowing small businesses to use them for a variety of reasons, including working capital, furniture, real estate, machinery and equipment, and even debt refinancing in specific scenarios. For working capital, loan maturity is up to 10 years. For fixed assets, it’s up to 25 years. There are multiple types of 7(a) programs, including Express Programs, Export Loan Programs, and Special Purpose Loan Programs.
SBA 504 LOANS
The SBA 504 loan program is for growing businesses that need long-term, fixed-rate financing for purchasing fixed assets, including real estate, land, buildings, and equipment. Unlike the 7(a) loan, 504 loans can’t be used for things like working capital. 504 loans include three parties: a private sector lender (like Core Bank), a Certified Development Company, and the borrower or small business. Generally, the private sector lender covers 50% of the loan, the CDC covers 40%, and you, the borrower, are responsible for contributing 10% of the loan amount.
Advantages of SBA Loans
SBA loans have advantages that conventional small business loans don’t. This is why they’re such a popular option, as well as why we’ve partnered with numerous small businesses looking to grow through obtaining an SBA loan.
- Available to small businesses without enough collateral to obtain a traditional commercial loan
- Longer repayment terms (up to 25 years), freeing up cashflow for uses other than paying off debt
