U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
The SBA helps Americans start, build, grow and acquire businesses.
Through their SBA 7a guaranteed lending program, the SBA guarantees part of the business loan that a lender provides. The lender provides and services the loan, but in the case of a loan default, the lender isn’t on the hook for all of the unpaid loan amount. This SBA guarantee results in lenders providing loans to small businesses that they otherwise would not.
