What is a Small Business Administration (SBA) loan?

The SBA is a federal agency that helps established businesses grow. As a borrower, you’re not borrowing from the SBA, you’re borrowing from a financial institution like Firstrust Bank that works with the SBA to provide loans to small business customers.

Understanding SBA Loans: What to know before applying.

The SBA (Small Business Administration) backs loans, they don’t lend money. This means the SBA doesn’t make direct loans to business owners to start or grow a business. Instead, it provides a guarantee to banks and lenders for the money they lend to small businesses owners.

The SBA backed loans have strict eligibility requirements. Here are four to consider: the business must be registered as a business, it must be physically located and operate in the U.S. or its territories, the business owner must have invested their own time or money into the business and the business cannot get funds from any other financial lender.
