What is an SBA 7(a) loan?

An SBA 7(a) loan is a small business loan that is offered by a lender in connection with the United States Small Business Administration (SBA). SBA 7(a) loans are the most popular SBA loan product as they provide flexible financing for small businesses. As a specialty loan, 7(a) loans provide multiple benefits for borrowers - 

  • Higher likelihood of approval - Even as a small business, you're more likely to be approved for a loan. 
  • Lower interest rates - As a government-backed product, 7(a) loans offer some of the lowest interest rates. 
  • Lower monthly payments - The loan is repaid over a longer period, keeping monthly payments low. 
  • Wide variety of uses - Funds can be used for a variety of expenses, including rent, payroll, 1099 payments, utilities, marketing and more.
