Home > SBA 7(a) Loans
Small Business Administration (SBA) loans are bank-funded government guaranteed loans. The SBA program allows banks to extend long terms for loans that otherwise would not be made. Unlike conventional commercial loans that typically have a three to five year call provision, SBA extends loans up to 25 years. There are two primary types of SBA loans: the SBA 7(a) loan and the SBA 504 loan.

SBA 7(a) Loan Program. Provides SBA 7(a) loans to eligible borrowers for starting, acquiring and expanding a small business. This type of loan is the most basic and the most used within SBA's business loan programs. Borrowers must apply through a participating lender institution.
