The Pros and Cons of an SBA Loan

Updated: Jun 4, 2020




An SBA loan is a long-term, low-interest small business loan partially guaranteed by the government. This could be real estate, equipment or machinery, expansion capital, funding the purchase of another business, disaster recovery or even, in some cases, refinancing other debts.


Under the U.S. Small Business Administration’s various “SBA loan” programs, you can borrow money for nearly any business purpose—including adding to working capital, purchasing inventory or equipment, refinancing other debts, buying real estate or even funding the acquisition of other businesses.
