Unfortunately your situation is like many others that I deal with on a daily basis. In your situation the SBA got a portion of the balance from the foreclosure on the business and the real estate involved. However you are still Personally Guaranteed for the remaining balance. You need to do what is called an “OIC” Offer in Compromise. You do not want to get into wage garnishment or sweeping of personal accounts by the US Department of Treasury.

The Microloan program provides small loans ranging from under $500 to $50,000. Under this program, the SBA makes funds available to nonprofit intermediaries that, in turn, make the small loans directly to entrepreneurs, including veterans. Proceeds can be used for typical business purposes such as working capital, or the purchase of furniture, fixtures, machinery, supplies, equipment, and inventory. Microloans may not be used for the purchase of real estate. Interest rates are negotiated between the borrower and the intermediary. The maximum term for a microloan is 7 years.

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 check 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!
Choosing isn’t as hard as it sounds, though. When you shop for your loan with Lendio, one of our personal funding managers will partner with you every step of the way. He or she will talk to you about all your loan options, help you calculate how much financing you need, walk you through collecting all the necessary documents and forms, and tell you everything’s going to be okay. We don’t hug, though. Hugs are where we draw the line.
U.S. Bank offers five types of SBA loans for businesses in almost any for-profit industry. Loan amounts range from $25,000 to more than $11.25 million and are available for a variety of business purposes, including:
Collateral: While the SBA will not refuse to guarantee a loan due to insufficient collateral, a lender is less likely to approve a loan that isn’t backed by sufficient collateral. Loans under $25K don’t need to be collateralized
National Funding offers special opportunities for its customers to terminate contracts early and receive a discount in the process. Equipment Finance customers who pay off the total remaining balance early, at any point during the contract, will automatically receive a 6% discount off the total remaining balance. Working Capital customers who pay off the total remaining balance in full within the first 100 days of the contract will automatically receive a 7% discount off the total remaining balance. We do not currently offer a discount on our lease contracts. Customers must pay off the balance in full, be current, and in good standing to take advantage of the discount within the time parameters.

Most 7(a) loans are used to purchase assets, such as real estate and equipment, due to favorable terms that let you repay the loan over the useful life of the asset: up to 25 years for real estate and 10 years for equipment. These longer repayment terms keep payments lower, meaning more capital stays in your business to fund operations and growth.
SBA Express Loans are another option under the 7(a) program. They give lenders the flexibility to offer a revolving loan structure for a specified period. What this means: you can draw funds out for a certain amount of time, say 1-2 years, paying only interest and treating the funds as a line of credit, before beginning to repay the loan through monthly payments of interest and principal. The maximum term on these loans is seven years.
The SBA Microloan program provides loans to nonprofit intermediary lenders who in turn lend amounts under $50,000 to for-profit small businesses and nonprofit child care centers. The SBA does not guarantee any portion of the loans made under the SBA Microloan program. Microloans have terms up to 6 years and the average size is $14,215.
The maximum amount that can be borrowed with an SBA 7(a) loan is $5,000,000. While the SBA does not set a minimum loan amount, most lenders will not consider loans under $30,000. The average SBA 7(a) loan amount in fiscal year 2015 was $371,628.

Keep in mind that since you don’t have a business started up yet or you’re just starting out, you likely have to borrow money based on your personal finances. For this reason, you’re more likely to qualify for startup financing with a strong personal credit score (720 or higher).
John, Our home was significantly damaged in October 2012 by Hurricane Sandy. Since that time we have still been struggling to rebuild & pick up the pieces. We had taken an SBA Loan as a second mortgage to help secure funds to assist with the rebuild & repairs. Due to a number of issues resulting from the storm, we have fell behind with our mortgage payments. We would like to maintain the home but are considering filing a chapter 13. Attorneys (New Jersey) have not advised me if the SBA 2nd mortgage can be stripped. What is your experience with this type of circumstance? Is the SBA 2nd mortgage treated the same as a typical 2nd mortgage from any bank? Do you know of any assistance / programs available to those who sustained damages now dealing with potentional issues of foreclosure? Thank you for your time.
“OnDeck’s process was very streamlined. I called them up, told them what I wanted to do, filled out some paper work, and within a couple days I had the money deposited in my bank account. I highly recommend OnDeck to any small business looking to grow. It has been very good for us — my business has grown 59% since I started working with OnDeck.”
Under law, the SBA can’t guarantee loans to businesses that can obtain the money they need on their own. So you have to apply for a loan on your own from a bank or other financial institution and be turned down.
SBA loans are backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration and issued by participating lenders, mostly banks. They are coveted by small business owners because they come with low rates and flexible terms.
1 Factor rate is the financing cost divided by the loan amount – but that’s not how traditional interest rates work. For example, if you pay 30 cents for a one-year loan of one dollar, your factor rate is 30% but is equivalent to a 55% interest rate! Factor rates can make short-term loans appear less expensive than a traditional interest rate would.
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.
