We didn’t think of that as an issue because we were in line for a large contract with one of our customers. Our customer had every intention of going through with the contract, but The Army cancelled their contract. We expect to see the contract come back in the next 6 months, but don’t think we’ll be able to sustain until then. Need some help.
Businesses must meet certain criteria to qualify for an SBA loan in addition to meeting the credit qualifications of the lending partner. We also differentiate SBA loans based on the need of the business owner.

If an SBA loan isn’t the right fit, look for small-business loans to meet your needs and goals with the help of NerdWallet’s comparison tool. We gauged lender trustworthiness and user experience, among other factors, and made recommendations based on categories including your revenue and how long you’ve been in business.
Personal loans can be a sensible alternative to small business loans in situations where the small business doesn’t yet have a solid history of profit, or can’t currently provide the documentation and analysis a bank requires to consider a small business loan. The personal loan is issued to an individual—the business owner—based on their credit. It is ultimately their responsibility to pay back the loan.
Note: SBA guaranteed loans are based on a working arrangement between the SBA and the bank. The SBA doesn’t lend money, and it doesn’t interface with borrowers. Banks and other participating lenders decide whether or not to approve loan applications, and then they apply directly to the SBA for the guarantee. Note: not all banks participate with the SBA.

A big advantage of getting a business line of credit as opposed to a term loan is that you don’t pay interest on a business line of credit unless you actually use the funds. Meeting short term working capital needs without taking in long term debt can save businesses on interest and help the balance sheets.

I received a disaster loan after hurricane Katrina. I had a small house that I was remodeling. My insurance cancelled because house was not livable. I became disabled after getting the loan and was forced to file for SS disability. With the decline in my income I missed a couple of payments and my loan was turned over to a collection agency. They deduct my payment out of my SS before I get it. It doesn’t leave me enough to even rent an apt. Is there any way I can get this loan forgiven. Please help!
In 2008 we defaulted on SBA loan, went through a foreclosure and our lawyer told us we were ‘all set’ and we through we were, this SUMMER we got a bill for $150,000. No contact in 7 years and the SBA all of a sudden sent us right on to the department of Treasury, no due process…. forced us into an emergency bankruptcy.
Startups will need to meet the above requirements and also show the lender that they have sufficient industry or business management experience. In our experience, it is very difficult for anyone other than the best borrowers (700+ credit score, high net worth, real estate with significant equity) to get approved for an SBA loan as a startup.
While the lender will run a credit report on you and your business, it is a good idea to have already checked both your personal and business credit profile ahead of time, to ensure its accuracy and to be prepared to answer any questions.
Large bank institutions, such as Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo, generate the bulk of their SBA loan volume by loans, especially the express loan and line of credit, offered to those who would be declined for ‘normal’ bank credit due to factors such as length of time in business or slightly more conservative underwriting factors. Banks have sophisticated computer systems that generally make this process seamless, and are quite different from other financial institutions who utilize SBA lending for separate and distinct purposes.
Note: The rates and terms of SBA Microloans are similar to those with most peer-to-peer loans. But peer-to-peer loans can be approved in minutes without much paperwork whereas SBA Microloans can take months to get approved and require extensive documentation. If your credit score is above 660 (check here for free) then see what you prequalify for with Lending Club.
The government-guaranteed SBA loan program works with banks to offer low interest rates and long-term repayment. But the process is time-consuming, and the requirements are strict. Only those with good personal credit (690 or higher, although some SBA lenders may have lower score requirements), strong business finances and the flexibility to wait for funding should apply.
