Join us for this enlightening seminar where we'll delve into the SBA's top three loan products: the SBA 7(a), SBA 504, and the SBA Microloan Program.

Key Takeaways:

  1. SBA 7(a) Loan Program: As the SBA's flagship loan program, the 7(a) offers flexibility, longer terms, and lower down payments compared to other financing options. Ideal for businesses needing financial help for a variety of general purposes, from working capital to purchasing real estate or equipment.

  2. SBA 504 Loan Program: Focused on economic development, the 504 loan is perfect for businesses looking to purchase major fixed assets such as land or buildings. Discover how this program can offer low down payments and fixed-rate financing, making it easier for businesses to expand and modernize.

  3. SBA Microloan Program: Tailored for smaller financial needs, the Microloan program provides loans up to $50,000. This is a fantastic option for startups, businesses in their early stages, or those needing smaller amounts of capital. Learn about the unique benefits, including the provision of valuable training and technical assistance.
