Fueling Growth for Small Businesses

By Ashton Spieker | Vice President/Loan Officer | Norfolk Main Branch

Small businesses play a crucial role in driving economic growth and creating job opportunities. However, they often face significant challenges when it comes to accessing capital and funding their expansion plans.

That’s where the Small Business Administration (SBA) and its loan programs come into the picture. Learn more about SBA loans for small businesses and how they can provide a lifeline for entrepreneurs looking to start or grow their ventures.

Understanding SBA Loans

The SBA is a government agency in the United States that aims to support small businesses by providing access to capital, counseling, and other resources. One of the SBA’s key offerings is its loan program, which facilitates funding for small businesses that may have difficulty obtaining financing through traditional channels.

SBA loans are not direct loans from the SBA. Instead, the agency guarantees a portion of the loan amount provided by participating lenders, like Midwest Bank, reducing the risk for these lenders and making it more feasible for them to lend to small businesses. This guarantee empowers lenders to offer favorable terms, such as longer repayment periods, which may not be available through conventional loans.
