Government Loans

Government loans from the SBA (Small Business Administration) can be used for most business purposes

  • The purchase of real estate to house the business
  • Construction, renovation or leasehold improvements
  • To purchase furniture, fixtures, machinery, or equipment
  • For the flooring of inventory and for working capital.

Government Loans are provided by the government to assist small businesses because they realize that they are the backbone of this country. The SBA (Small Business Administration) is part of the government, and they have programs to help businesses get approved for financing. With one of their programs, they will guarantee part of the loan with the lender, so it increases the likelihood that you will get approved. We give you several options to look over below.
