What is an SBA Loan?
SBA-guaranteed loans are made by private lenders and are guaranteed up to 80 percent by the SBA. This helps reduce the lender’s risk and helps them provide financing that’s otherwise unavailable at reasonable terms. SBA loans are typically more difficult to qualify for but offer low rates, favorable terms, and other benefits. From 7(a) loans and microloans to disaster loans and debt consolidation, SBA loan programs come in many different forms.

Frequently Asked Questions
The SBA helps small businesses obtain needed credit by giving the government's guaranty to loans made by commercial lenders. The lender makes the loan and SBA will repay up to 85% of any loss in case of default. Since this is a bank loan, applications are submitted to the bank and loan payments are paid to the bank.
Eligible businesses must:
- Operate for profit
- Be engaged in, or propose to do business in, the U.S. for 2 years.
- Have reasonable owner equity to invest.
SBA loan programs are generally intended to encourage longer-term small business financing. Loan maturities are based on the ability to repay, the purpose of the loan proceeds, and the useful life of the assets financed.
The maximum maturities for SBA loans are as follows:
- 25 years for real estate
- 10 years for equipment
- 10 years of working working capital or inventory loan
