Financing Small Businesses

What types of loans does the SBA offer?

There are many loan programs available, depending on your business, your location, your ownership, whom you serve, etc. Some programs include: the 7(a) Loan Program (loans for businesses with special requirements, such as exports assistance, companies affected by NAFTA, rural business loans, and loans in underserved communities); the CDC/504 program (long-term financing that helps develop communities); and the Microloan Program (small, short-term loans for certain types of businesses).
