Small Business Administration 7a Loan Program
SBA 7(a), a popular loan program for small business owners, is a great option to consider when seeking funding. These loans are provided by the Small Business Administration (SBA) and are designed to help small businesses grow and expand.
One of the main benefits of SBA 7(a) loans is that they offer lower interest rates and longer repayment terms than many other types of loans, making them a more affordable choice for those without sufficient cash flow to meet large monthly payments. Additionally, SBA 7(a) loans are backed by the government, which makes them easier to qualify for than traditional bank loans.
Customers Bank is a preferred SBA lender and offers SBA loans through the SBA 7(a), SBA 504, and microloan programs. If you are not familiar with SBA loans, we will help you explore the opportunities and benefits available from the SBA that can help your small business succeed.
