SBA Backed Loans

When you’ve approached every lender and every bank, but you’ve faced denials at every turn, what options do you have available? SBA-backed funds provide exceptional rates to help businesses from mom and pops to businesses earning $5m or less annually, and valued under $15m.


SBA 504 loans

Developers wanted

SBA 504 loans are private loans backed by the SBA that are managed by a nonprofit organization called a Certified Development Company (CDC). These loans offer up to $5m for major fixed assets. The CDC’s mission is to provide fixed-rate loans that contribute to the community through the development of jobs and other economic contributions, including construction funding.
SBA 7a

Property, Equipment and Working Capital

The SBA 7a loan is the most common loan backed by the SBA. When a business needs to purchase property, high value equipment, or to access working capital funds to support daily operations and revenue generating activity, the 7a may be the right choice, especially if your business has been turned down by other lenders.
Working Capital

Manage expense, payroll and open-to-buy dollars

Working capital is critical for every business. Working capital is the total value of cash assets that can be quickly turned into cash, including stock on hand, accounts receivable, and business credit. SBA-backed Working Capital comes with very competitive rates and can help businesses attain the flexibility they need to remain competitive.
Commercial Real Estate

Purchase owner-occupied properties

Owner-occupied property helps your business purchase a valuable asset. Manage your costs as rental fees increase by owning your property. With an owner-occupied loan, you can also rent up to 49% of the usable space to other businesses to offset cost.
Construction Financing

Build your ideal property

SBA 504 loans can be applied to new construction, allowing you to build an ideal owner-occupied property from the ground up. Because Certified Development Corporations are experienced in construction funding, they can help determine the quality and credibility of contractors, track stages of construction, and schedule inspection of each stage to confirm completion prior to disbursement of funds.
Equipment Funding

Upgrade and expand operations with the right equipment

SBA-backed equipment funding provides low-cost loans to help your business expand operations, create jobs, and compete with larger providers in your market. What will you need to demonstrate? That you qualify as a for-profit small business, and that you have a clear case of business need.


Open the door to opportunity with low-interest equipment, land, property, construction and working capital funds backed by the SBA.

Businesses that have been denied by banks are uniquely qualified for SBA-backed funds.

SBA-backed funds come with highly competitive terms

When you add jobs within your community you help the SBA fulfill their mission at the same time you fulfill yours.

We’ve given a few examples of the most popular types of loans that bring cash into your business quickly.

What is the working capital ratio?

If you don’t have enough money to pay employees and keep the lights on, then the value of your long-term assets matters very little. That money, used for almost all daily expenses is referred to as working capital. Most businesses try to maintain a working capital ratio between 1.5 and 2.0. If you’re not sure what your ratio is, simply divide your firm’s annual liquid assets by its annual short-term expenses. The result is your working capital ratio.

Is working capital financing right for my firm?

If you are looking to make a large investment or a long-term purchase, it is usually better to focus on certain tools (like a real-estate loan).  Working capital loans are usually better for short-term situations and boosting operational cash. If you are not in a rush for funds, other financing tools may be better for you, as working capital financing often comes with higher interest rates.

Will a factor impact my client relationships?
While not all factors interact with your clients in the same way, most clients won’t notice when you use a factor. In most situations, a simple notice of where to send payment is the only contact the client receives.
