SBA Com


If you have a business plan but are having trouble acquiring a bank loan, consider reaching out to the Small Business Association (SBA). The SBA is a government-affiliated organization that provides small businesses with a variety of finance programs. The SBA can help facilitate a loan for you with a third-party lender.

What Is the SBA?

Many people opening a new business may not yet be familiar with the SBA. It’s an agency backed by the federal government that helps entrepreneurs and small business owners access starting capital, and under some conditions approval is guaranteed. In order to help people start or expand their businesses, the SBA partners with a network of lenders to help provide loans, contracts, and other forms of financial assistance.

SBA Loan Basics

If you’re a small business owner having trouble qualifying for a traditional loan, the SBA offers various different loan programs, each designed for a specific purpose.

If you’re starting or expanding your business, consider the following loan programs:

If your business has suffered an economic loss or physical disaster, consider a:

  • Disaster Loan
  • Veteran and Military Community Loan

In addition to those programs, there are also:

  • Export Assistance Loans
  • Special Purpose Loans
