What is an SBA Loan?

An SBA Loan is a term loan program designed by the Small Business Administration to help business owners secure long term financing. It’s important to understand that even though the program is designed by the Small Business Administration, they are not the lenders that are lending the money. This is usually misconstrued by business owners, but the lenders that provide the money for the SBA Loan are the ones that determine eligibility, rates, terms, etc…

SBA Loan sizes range from $50,000 to $10,000,000, with terms from 10 to 25 years, and interest rates between 5.25% and 7.75%. In order to qualify for an SBA loan a business must have strong operating history, collateral available to secure the loan, and good personal credit. SBA Loan programs have a document intensive process, but has a dramatically positive impact on businesses once closed.

Why would a business use an SBA Loan?

  • Refinancing short term loans and credit card debt

What is a real example of a company that closed an SBA Loan?

We recently worked with a Logistics and Transportation company located in Northern Florida that had been operating for over 12 years. As they were growing and adding trucks to their fleet they were utilizing 5 year truck financing programs and hiring new employees to keep up with the demand. The total monthly payment on the trucks were $28,000 per month and the short term notes used to keep up with payroll added another $8,500 of monthly payments. Using a 10 year SBA Loan we were able to refinance the debt and reduce the monthly payments from $36,500 to $10,800. The business now has over $300,000 a year in additional cash flow.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"We cannot express just how grateful we are that we found this company to work with. No matter what finance companies we reached out to for help we kept getting turned away and even at times, no call back. SMB Compass found us the best source of financing that would not just help in the short term, but gave us a solid plan to regain financial independence. We have been able to keep employees working and grow our business."
Tim C.


"My family business has been around for over 25 years and we are grateful to have been introduced to the SMB Compass team. We’re now growing by 50% per year and without the help of SMB Compass, we wouldn’t have the capital to do so. We started off with a series of 5 year equipment loans and a 5 year working capital loan, and now the SMB Compass team has been able to secure a bank term loan and a $450,000 line of credit, with a bank that’s willing to grow with us!"

"I can’t begin to explain how helpful Matt Gillman and the SMB Compass team has been. I was able to put an operating line of credit in place along with a term facility that recapitalized my business. I constantly tell Matt and his team that they need to figure out a way to show people how different they are then others. I have recommended SMB Compass to family and friends and highly recommend them to any business owner looking for financing."
